About the Project
There are more opportunities than ever before for young people to engage in exchange programs. And yet, the majority of today’s young generation do not seem to be accessing international mobility initiatives and projects. Even though extensive research has been conducted on international youth exchanges, as yet there is no reliable data available from Germany on the actual share of young people participating in international exchange projects, those not reached by the program offerings, factors that impact their decisions, and the types of barriers hindering them. This research project aims to close the existing knowledge gap. The access study is a project led by Forschung und Praxis im Dialog (FPD) (Research and Practice in Dialogue) and supported by the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, and the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
