Project description
The project is a part of the worldwide study, International Study of City Youth (, in which young people's educational trajectories and learning of the 21st century skills will be followed up in eleven countries and twelve cities over a four-year period. The aim of the project is to analyze how different education systems generate both effectiveness and equality with regard to transition to work, further study or training, and individual capacity to participate actively in economic, social and political life. The research project will enable us to gain worldwide longitudinal knowledge about preconditions and opportunities for learning and thus enable us to re-think the functions and designs of education systems, as well as the knowledge and skill needs of the 21st century. The research project emerges from the work conducted within IRNYET research network (International Research Network on Youth Education and Training).
