Next Youth Research Dialogue

Towards more inclusive European youth programmes – Perspectives and Needs

Our Youth Research Dialogues series continues on 5 March and this time we will take a closer look at one of the priorities of Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps, namely Inclusion and Diversity.

We will discuss related findings and insights from the current RAY Monitoring surveys as well as from a recent research published by the SALTO Inclusion and Diversity Resource Centre (SALTO I&D) on ‘Making Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps more inclusive’.

The implementation of the European youth programmes regarding the the priority, profiles of beneficiaries, project participants and young people with fewer opportunities as well as methodology and terminology are among the issues addressed during our dialogue.

This episode is part of the RAY Monitoring Editions. As a reminder, these special editions focus on our newest findings of the RAY Monitoring surveys with beneficaries of the European youth programmes. You can rewatch the other parts of this series HERE, HERE and HERE.

Context

The RAY Monitoring surveys are conducted with beneficiaries and participants of Erasmus+ Youth and European Solidarity Corps. For the first time since the start of the pandemic the RAY Network is surveying project participants and project team members of the the European youth programmes. The current surveys have been launched in June 2023 and remained open until October 2023. The multilingual online surveys are aiming at analysing the impact of the European Youth Programmes and their effects on individual, organisational, community and European levels. Project participants and project team members who were part or implemented an Erasmus+ Youth or European Solidarity Corps project within the current programme period are invited to reflect on the effects of the projects and activities (e.g. on participation and citizenship, digitalisation, sustainability, diversity and inclusion) and their own learning pathway and competence development. Furthermore, the effects on learning organisations and communities, the inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities, the recognition of youth work, the European dimension as well as the implementation of the programmes are thematised.


What are the Youth Research Dialogues?

The overall aim of the ‘Youth Research Dialogues’ series is to not only to make RAY research findings more accessible but also other European youth research studies and create a dialogue between researchers about their findings. The ‘Youth Research Dialogues’ series  promotes different topics, e.g. inclusion and diversity, pandemic and youth work, digitalisation etc. In addition to researchers from the RAY Network, the ‘Youth Research Dialogues’ series  features research colleagues from different global and European contexts and networks.
