EduWel Final Conference II

Creating educational and labour market opportunities for socially vulnerable youth

Current policy approaches and alternative perspectives


Brussels, 10 June 2013, 13h30-16h30


Residence Palace (room Polak), 155 Rue de la Loi, 1040 Bruxelles


The dramatic effects of the financial crisis are disproportionally hitting Europe’s young population. Existing educational and labour market policies aimed at the young have not proved effective especially in  relation to the most vulnerable, such as , for example, those with a  background of migration or socio-economic disadvantage. 15 young research fellows - working in different European countries in the framework of the EU funded Marie Curie programme Education as Welfare (EduWel) - have critically researched the transition pathways of socially vulnerable youth after compulsory schooling. Embedded into international scientific communities and international stakeholders, the young researchers have explored vulnerabilities and opportunities of young people in Europe and the role education and welfare can play in enhancing those opportunities. The research fellows will present their findings and engage in discussion with European policymakers, social partners and civil society thereby revealing their alternative solutions towards a more equal and just society.


The European Trade Union Institute (ETUI) is organising - together with the Marie Curie Initial Training Network (EduWel) - a half-day conference entitled ‘Creating educational and labour market opportunities for socially vulnerable youth’ which will take place on Monday 10th June from 1.30 pm to 4.30pm at the Residence Palace (Rue de la Loi).

The aim of the conference is to stimulate the debate on education, labour market and migration issues concerning young people. The will be three panels with EduWel research fellows presenting their findings and two discussants commenting on the presentation from their perspective.
