As most European countries are facing an unprecedented inflow of migrants, questions of their integration into societies keep popping up. Among numerous issues about opportunities and challenges of this urging process, the relationship between entrepreneurship and migration has found its way to the top of many national and international agendas.
The project Social entrepreneurship in migration ― Enhancing employability and innovation among young refugees represents a step forward in defining the role of youth work in social entrepreneurship today. The innovative trait of the project is twofold: in addition to defining new areas of work and developing new tools, the project is complementary to the socioeconomic, demographic and political changes in Europe, setting new priorities not only to youth work, but also to the process of youth work recognition.
This project conforms to the trend of development of youth work as a tool to combat youth related issues such as social exclusion and unemployment, which are present both at European and national level in all 3 partner countries Germany, Croatia and Belgium.
