We will attempt an analysis of reasons for marginalization, learn how to recognize socially problematic phenomena, their variants and delimitations. The course covers theories of risky behavior. We will focus on the issue of youth as an endangered social group. Students will be presented an overview of basic concepts and approaches that will be further discussed.
