International migrations & (im)mobilities

Find here below all the materials prepared by the NEW ABC partners who first came up with this pilot action. You can find some particularities, the handbook prepared to explain the whole implementation process, and templates and specific materials produced for carrying out some activities.

This handbook is addressed to different social actors and organisations, volunteers, citizen groups, and policy makers−actively engaged in the reception and direct assistance of asylum seekers and refugees in the form of health, psychological, legal protection and educational and learning support. It proposes a step-by-step procedure to collect the life and migratory trajectories of young adult asylum seekers and refugees, paying particular attention to processes of inclusion and integration through formal (e.g. education, school, work) and informal learning (e.g. social relations and encounters).

It is important to implement this pilot because…

focusing on the situations and experiences of forced migration can contribute to the understanding of how young immigrants with a refugee background and the local population, as well as institutions such as reception centers or organizations, construct daily inclusion and integration. This gives opportunities to understand the construction and change of the identity of young migrants with a refugee background, their experiences, and participation and agency in different communities.

The aim of this pilot action is…
to collectively create good practices to overcome the conditions and experiences related to forced migration by developing the personal autonomy of young adults and their opportunities to get work, education, legal help and health care or language training.

In the pilot

  • Young adults with refugee backgrounds produce stories about their experiences by using various participatory and creative methods. During this process, researchers work with young adults of refugee backgrounds, representatives of various stakeholders and community volunteers. Young adults participating in the pilot gain also experience as co-researchers.
  • Already existing socio-communicative practices in young people’s living spaces or places where they spend their free time are mapped together with young adults and various stakeholders.
  • We will share information and disseminate experience from the results of the pilot.

This pilot aims to influence the reception system locally, nationally and Europe-wide as well as the actors involved in it, such as authorities, NGOs, political decision-makers and volunteers.
