YOUNG_ADULLLT – Policies Supporting Young Adults in their Life Course. A Comparative Perspective of Lifelong Learning and Inclusion in Education and Work in Europe
Laufzeit: 2016-2019
Fördergeber: European Union – Horizon 2020

Kurzbeschreibung:
YOUNG_ADULLLT is an EU-funded comparative and mixed methods research project with 15 partner institutions in 9 EU member states.

Current Lifelong Learning (LLL) policies for young adults in Europe aim both at creating economic growth and, at the same time, guaranteeing social inclusion. However, their distinct orientations and objectives as well as varying temporal horizons may create or exacerbate conflicts and ambiguities thus causing fragmentation, ineffectiveness and/or unintended effects for young people. YOUNG_ADULLLT aims at analyzing the interaction and complementarity of LLL policies and policy-making with other sectorial policies as well as understanding the different ways in which LLL policies are socially embedded in specific regional and local contexts across Europe.

The project focuses on the interplay of three different analytical levels and perspectives – the individual, the structural level and the institutional level. Its research objectives are:

  • Understanding the relationship and complementarity between LLL policies and young people’s social conditions and assessing their potential implications and intended/unintended effects on young adults’ life courses.
  • Analysing LLL policies in terms of young adults’ needs as well as their potential for successfully recognising and mobilising the hidden resources of young adults for their life projects.
  • Researching LLL policies in their embeddedness in regional economies, labour markets and individual life projects of young adults.
  • Identifying best practices and patterns of coordinating policy-making at local and regional levels.
