Erasmus+ For Refugees and Migrants
21-26 May 2017 | İzmir, Turkey
Migration is one of the major social, economic and political issues of the contemporary societies and the lack of information related to the issue is perpetuating related challenges both for migrants and the hosting societies.
Zygmunt Bauman, one of the most influential thinkers of our time, argues that the fear of refugees boils down to the idea of the “precariat” - people whose lives are marked by precariousness, anxiety and fear.

Youth sector stands as one of the essential stakeholders in order to develop support mechanisms and solutions concerning these challenges.
In this context, Erasmus + Programme provides efficient tools for the youth sector, which can encourage and provide technical/methodological/financial support for migrants as they design their own solutions for the issue.
The aim of this training course is to inform youth organizations and youth workers about using Erasmus + programme as a tool and encourage and reinforce them to design required support activities and mechanisms for refugees and migrants.
Furthermore, the course aims to create a basis for a Europe-wide network of youth organizations, which will assist to develop projects related to migrants and refugees by using Erasmus+.
The main objectives are:
