Title: Intra-EU youth migration. Why do young people move to other EU-countries?

YMobility is a EU-funded (Horizon 2020) project involving nine countries: Romania, Slovakia, Latvia, the UK, Sweden, Germany, Italy, Ireland and Spain.

The purpose of the project is to understand and explain why young people move between EU-countries, and the effects of those movements.

The research mainly rely on primary quantitative data (large-scale surveys) and qualitative data (interviews). A survey with 30 000 young Europeans has been conducted, as well as 800 interviews with migrants and returnees.

At the seminar, results from the research project YMobility is presented, with a focus on results from the survey. The presentation is followed by a discussion among some of the researchers about the future of intra-EU mobility, with among others Professors:

Russell King and Professor Allan Williams from the UK,

Professor Armando Montanari from Italy,

Professor Zaiga Krišjāne from Latvia,

Dumitru Sandu from Romania,



YMOBILITY provides a comparative overview of the major youth mobility pathways for students, skilled and ‘unskilled’ workers, and the characteristics of these pathways in terms of temporalities and motivations. Moreover, the project tries to provide a systematic overview of the different socio-economic characteristics and also psychographic characteristics of mobile and non-mobile youth.

YMOBILITY provides the first comprehensive comparative, quantitative and qualitative study of the economic, social and cultural outcomes of youth mobility. One of the aims of the project is to define appropriate methodologies and to implement ad hoc methods of research, previously defined, for exploring aspects of youth mobility that cannot be studied through existing secondary data.
