Join us for our second episode

Implementation of the European Solidarity Corps

Join us for our next Youth Research Dialogue on 25 April.

We will talk about the implementation of the European Solidarity Corps with our RAY transnational research team and our guest speaker.

RAY has been conducting transnational interviews with stakeholders and is currently finalising the analysis which will be published in early summer. You have the chance to hear a sneak peek already now. Furthermore, our discussion will be enriched by an analysis on networking activities and trainings within the European Solidarity Corps, which has previously been published by the SALTO European Solidarity Corps Resource Centre.

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.

What is the RAY research project on the research-based analysis and monitoring of the European Solidarity Corps (RAY SOC)?
This research project aims to contribute to quality assurance and quality development in the implementation of the European Solidarity Corps (2021–2027), to evidence-based and research- informed youth policy development and youth work practice, and to a better understanding of volunteering, learning and youth activism in the context of solidarity actions of young people.
