Scarred Youth – What can the EU do? – NEGOTIATE project’s final conference

On 4 and 5 December 2017 the NEGOTIATE project, whose consortium members include SOLIDAR Foundation, will hold its final conference titled ‘Scarred Youth – What can the EU do?’ that will take place in Norway House in Brussels. Ten years after the onset of the financial crisis, unemployment and job insecurity are still challenges that affect young people in all European countries. The NEGOTIATE project reveals that despite convergences in policies there are still significant divergences in outcomes between countries and bad luck in the timing of labour market entry leaves scars on the young. Questions that we would like to address at the final conference include:

  • Are there grounds for common policies in a strongly differentiated European context, where differences in risks and opportunities for young people grow across as well as within countries?
  • What have we learned? How can we recognise good practices and are they transferable from one context to another?

Here you can find the draft programme of the conference.
Join us to discuss the outcomes of the research project and its policy recommendations together with the involved scholars, policy makers, civil society and youth.

Please register at the latest by 29 November.
