Youth, Education and Work (YEW)

Conducting research that matters for youth

The modern, globalised society provides new opportunities and challenges for youth in the transition from education to the labour market. Youth, Education and Work (YEW) is a global network of scholars and practitioners who use research to contribute to solutions that help youth develop productive learn-work biographies and find meaningful (self-) employment.

The network emerged from the former research project named Early School Leaving in Africa which started in 2007. Global challenges of youth unemployment, social exclusion and lifelong learning are being addressed through participatory research approaches that connect stakeholders and are embedded in local and practical knowledge while maintaining high academic standards. Through joint publications, student exchanges, conferences and seminars the Youth, Education and Work network involves research institutions, companies, government, civil society and youth from several countries in South America, North America, Africa, Middle East and Europe.
