    Need

    The Youth Empowerment and Innovation Project (YEIP) aims to design a positive policy prevention framework for tackling and preventing marginalisation and violent radicalisation among young people in Europe.

    Solution

    YEIP will be implemented through the construction and field validation of tools (YEIP PREVENT model/ interventions, toolkit, training) in 4 environments (schools, universities, prisons, online) in 8 EU member states. Involving 20 partners and led by the user-led NGO, IARS International Institute, YEIP will lay the foundations for systemic change at the national level and EU levels by ooting out the reasons that lead to young peoples’ marginalisation and radicalisation.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Construct and test innovative policy intervention models.

    Activities

    » Through research leading into the trialing and development of both national and pan-European toolkits.

    Freely available research outputs and training.


  • Impact

    Impact

    Through the use of multi-disciplinary tools, we will construct tools that will test and implement this measure at the local, national and EU wide level. The ultimate objective is for the project to help address the KA3 PT7 aligned with the EU Youth Strategy’s objective of preventing the factors that can lead to young people’s social exclusion and radicalisation.

    Risk

    The difference across Europe in defining radicalisation and identifying marginalised groups. This will change from country to country.

    Reporting

    Periodic report on both the progress and findings, as well as the financial side of the project.
