Youth Mobility in the Age of Crisis
Start date: Nov 10, 2014, End date: Apr 10, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The crisis and rising protective measures towards national labour markets pose a challenge towards mobility, especially youth mobility. Young people, having accomplished their education or seeking employment abroad face various challenges regarding their future in the EU. The negative changes that occur on the EU labour markets, policy and media discourses are, however, often in sharp contrast with the needs of creating the pro-active youth policy, economy of knowledge and overall economic growth. The project aims at bringing together different national perspectives and challenges on youth mobility in the 21st century of young activists – students, journalists, civil and ngo workers, young academics. We want to contribute to: - further exchange and analyse of practice and experience, methodologies and approaches of youth work in the field of migration - explore the opportunities provided by Erasmus + in the field of migration and youth work - improvement of youth workers’ skills in tackling migration and integration with young people - development of an understanding of different aspects of migration and the relations in the context - development of new projects related to integration of young people from immigrant background - building of new partnerships between participating organisations The seminar will provide insights into different types of national migration management regimes and EU migration policy. By examining the types of actors and institutions involved into European and national policies the seminar provides an overview of existing regimes and protection measures, economic, national and human rights rationale for existing policies. In the end of the project participants should be able to demonstrate the knowledge and competency about the key issues that are in the centre of the debate of mobility of young Europeans, describe contemporary conflicts in the politics and media regarding this issue, identify and address in their everyday work and activities the potentially dangerous dynamics in the field of mobility of Europeans and be able to apply theoretical knowledge and practical skills for diversity management (linguistic, religious and cultural, etc.).
