Co-organised with the Global Platform for Syrian Students, in cooperation with Kiron - Open Higher Education for Refugees and Voice of Young Refugees in Europe.


The Summer School follows on the experience and proposals of the 2016 seminar to develop the capacities of young refugees as actors and agents of change in their communities. It is based on the principles of empowerment and participation of young refugees and it aims at reinforcing resilience and leadership skills. It supported social inclusion of young refugees in Europe by developing participants’ competences in their role as multipliers for youth participation, democratic citizenship and intercultural dialogue.

The specific objectives included:

  • To share and reflect on the situation and challenges faced by young refugees in Europe
  • To strengthen participants understanding and practical knowledge in the areas of democratic citizenship, dialogue, conflict transformation and leadership
  • To enhance participants motivation and abilities for entrepreneurship and social/youth projects in their communities
  • To provide participants with a wide range of soft skills that can enhance the creative and innovative capacities of young people in ways that are relevant to building resilient societies and not just in relation to employability
  • To support networking among refugees and other students and youth organisations
  • To enhance the credibility, visibility and sustainability of youth work with refugees and provide input to the policy of the Council of Europe and partners in this respect.
