“I’m a bit afraid about my future here in Rome”, Alina says. She came to Italy 16 years ago from the region of Moldavia, in Romania, and soon she will be officially a psychotherapist.
YMOBILITY is the first project to provide a comparative overview of the major youth mobility pathways for students, skilled and ‘unskilled’ workers, and the characteristics of these pathways in terms of temporalities and motivations. Moreover, the project tries to provide a systematic overview of the different socio-economic characteristics and also psychographic characteristics of mobile and non-mobile youth.
YMOBILITY provides the first comprehensive comparative, quantitative and qualitative study of the economic, social and cultural outcomes of youth mobility. One of the aims of the project is to define appropriate methodologies and to implement ad hoc methods of research, previously defined, for exploring aspects of youth mobility that cannot be studied through existing secondary data.
