The 9 countries involved in the YMOBILITY project represent different contexts for youth mobility. This allows for a focus on countries predominantly associated with immigration and migrant reception, countries associated with net emigration and countries experiencing both outwards and inwards migration. The 9 partner countries involved in YMOBILITY are:

  • the UK and Sweden (Destination countries)
  • Romania, Slovakia and Latvia (Sending countries)
  • Germany, Italy, Ireland and Spain (Destination and sending countries)

Given the breadth and scope of YMOBILITY, the research programme consists of a number of complimentary methodological strands. The research will utilize existing secondary data for the whole of the EU, to compliment primary quantitative data (large-scale surveys) and qualitative data (interviews). The policy analysis will be informed by interviews undertaken with key informants. Experimental methods will be used to assess how individuals will respond to different scenarios of future economic and social change.
