In public debates, young migrant men frequently feature as a problematic group, because of higher unemployment, failing in the education system, potentially upholding sexist attitudes, violent and criminal behaviour. They face discrimination significantly more often than their female counterparts. At the same time, young male migrants have to cope with high expectations of their families to succeed. The various expectations and preconceptions contribute to gender-specific risks of marginalisation of young migrant men. Counteracting their discrimination and marginalisation and implementing policies to support their well-being constitute significant European challenges.
