How mobility impacts the future of underprivileged youth
Numerous initiatives are in place to promote education among youth and to encourage mobility for educational and professional purposes. However, the widespread idea that formal education and a multi-local lifestyle contribute to individual progress and wellbeing does not find confirmation in the biographies of underprivileged Roma and non-Roma youth “affected by mobility”. The EU-funded RETRY project will answer the question on how, and under what conditions, their trajectories reproduce societal inequalities or disclose broader processes of social transformation. The issue will be tackled through a spatial and relational theory of resilience and resignation in youth, with particular attention to the role of public policies, community strategies and personal networks.
