MOVE policy briefs available

On 22 June , the MOVE Consortium gathered in Brussels for the final time, marking the end of the three-year project (2015-2018), which was officially closed in April this year.

The aim of MOVE was to provide a systematic analysis of youth mobility in Europe and knowledge about the complexities of young people’s mobility patterns on an individual and socio-structural level. The main question it tried to solve was how the mobility of young people can be ‘good’ both for socio-economic development and for individual growth of young people, and what factors foster such beneficial mobility.

The project looked at 6 different mobility types: Higher education, voluntary work, employment, vocational training, pupil's exchange and entrepreneurship. You can acquire a more in-depth knowledge of each one reading the policy briefs from MOVE, which have recently been published and are ready to be disseminated. 

There are 2 general policy briefs, as well as 4 more specific briefs on: Mobility at EU level, VET mobility, volunteering mobility, entrepreneurial mobility.

With the goal in mind to analyse factors hindering or fostering youth mobility, the project provides examples of good practices useful for young persons wishing to study, work and live in another country of the European Union.

Despite the official project end, the MOVE consortium is planning to work on some more publications. We are very happy to see youth information and counselling recognised as an important part of the youth mobility process, particularly for mobility at EU level. Young people need information before, during and after their mobility experience, but it is also a fundamental resource for the different stages of their lives.
