  • Impact

    Impact

    Bringing together a diverse group of people including policy makers, practitioners, young people, researchers, academics and employers, the conference will present cutting edge research and debate youth-led initiatives in the UK and other European countries that can contribute to reforms required to better support young people into work, training and further education.

    Risk

    Persistent social inequalities and exclusion continue to perpetuate unequal access to labour markets for young people. Focusing on young carers, one of the most marginalised groups in Europe, this international event will explore youth led-solutions to unemployment with the ultimate objective of bringing barriers down and informing international policy and practice.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    IARS’ first value of User & Civic Participation is based on our belief that strong democracies are not those that elect and maintain systems of governance that cultivate and enforce power over others, but those that truly share that power with those who need it. Society can be improved through social enterprising taking place at all levels: individual, project and organisational.
