Et team af forskere fra Køln Universitet beskriver den indsigt, de har fået i, hvad der skal til for at skabe deltagelse og styrke interkulturel forståelse i børne-og ungdomsorganisationer.
The publication is published by The International Youth Service of the federal Republic of Germany. It presents the work of the project ‘JiVE – Youth Work International – Experiencing Diversity’. Having both, a practical and a research component, JIVE has shown that the concepts and methods of international youth work are capable of supporting young members of the immigrant community in participating in society.
Moreover, the project aimed to give young members of the immigrant community greater access to international youth work, and to use international youth work as a medium to create greater intercultural awareness. Finally, the project brought together international youth work, youth social work – especially youth migration services – and immigrant community groups.
This document deals with such topics as new perspectives for youth service organisations as well as immigrant community membership or promoting integration and social participation.
