Purpose of the analytical paper
Taking into due account the existing documents adopted by the two partner institutions, the analytical papers commissioned by the youth partnership (particularly in the field of social inclusion) and a relevant sample of the existing bibliography, this analytical paper should research on the linkages between social inclusion and learning mobility of young people, especially taking into account – but not necessarily limited to – the areas of work of the EPLM: linking youth work and learning mobility; providing information and guidance; ensuring quality and recognition; facilitating learning mobility for all and in diversity, competences and training; evaluation, learning transfer and impact.
Such analyses should take into account the framework and the proceedings of the second bi-annual conference of the EPLM: Learning mobility in the youth field: towards opportunities for all. Evidence, experience, discourse, which will take place on 7-9 October 2015 in Istanbul, Turkey, with particular regard to the subthemes of the conference. To this end, participation of the author in the conference would be highly recommended.
