Apply now for a study visit to Brussels from 14th to 19th October 2019!
There are more than 1.2 billion young people (ages 15-24) in the world today with about 89 million youth (ages 15-29) in the countries of the European Union. Young people are impacted by constant changes in global social and economic realities, and many of them face poverty, exclusion, inequality and marginalization. Their personal circumstances and wider political, social and economic environment may make them vulnerable to various radical influences and also violent radicalization. Realities of this emerging trend make it necessary to emphasize the need to work with young people in Europe and its neighboring regions, in order to strengthen their resilience to violent radicalization, and reinforce the openness and inclusiveness of communities in which they live.
This study visit will tackle the role of youth work in addressing the risks of radicalization, through encounters, discussions and sharing spaces with experienced Belgium realities. This study visit is a rich opportunity for further professional development on the topic.
