Work Package 7

Regional/local Case Studies

A comparative analysis of policymaking networks that include all social actors involved in shaping, formulating, and implementing LLL policies for young adults’ lies at the heart of WP 7. Analyzing the intersections between the social and the economic dimensions aims at recognizing strengths (and best practices) and weaknesses (overlapping, fragmented or unfocused policies and projects), thus identifying different patterns LLL policy-making at regional level, and investigating their integration with the labour market, education and other social policies but also their impact on the target groups.

Based on case studies, the analyses integrate results from previous WPs in order to provide a regional review of politics and programs, networks of actors and individual life projects of young adults for an ideal-typical modelling. The analysis is expected to contribute to developing innovation strategies for social inclusion based on real needs and real resources of youth.
