We are pleased to announce the launch of our latest research paper titled “Fighting youth unemployment, marginalisation and radicalisation prevention through social inclusion in Europe“. The study builds on the findings of Eurodiaconia’s “Empower You(th)!” project and is based on an extensive survey conducted between July and October 2019.
The research consists of the following four sections:
- Section 1 – Showcases an overview and assessment of the current EU policies and state of play on youth unemployment, marginalisation and radicalisation prevention through social exclusion.
- Section 2 – Focuses on the online survey results that provide information on the Eurodiaconia members’ work with the youth and their perception regarding the current EU policies.
- Section 3 – Includes a collection of the best practices of the 9 Eurodiaconia member organisations that took part in the study, and it builds them on the existing findings of the Empower You(th)! Project.
- Section 4 – Presents a set of policy recommendations that stem from the existing policies and evidence and are based on the opinions and good practices of the Eurodiaconia members.
In a broader context this research paper examines the role of diaconal institutions and diaconal youth work in fighting and preventing youth unemployment-led marginalisation and radicalisation.
