The Partnership between the European Commission and the Council of Europe in the field of youth is currently finalising new resources for professionals working with young refugees and asylum-seekers. A youth knowledge book will reflect research on how to improve the work with young refugees. A practical guide for youth work with young refugees will focus on intercultural learning, access to social rights, young women refugees, youth participation, and mental health and trauma. Both resources will be accessible online after summer 2018.
Furthermore, in December 2018, a seminar entitled “BRIDGES TO NEW BEGINNINGS: Seminar on the role of the youth sector in supporting young refugees”, will be organised.
The Partnership between the European Commission and the Council of Europe in the field of youth has organised over the last 2 years a number of seminars and expert meetings, resulting in a thematic page “Rights, inclusion and participation of young refugees” related to the responses of the youth field in relation to young refugees. The page contains links to various resources, and also policy related work, notably a policy paper on the role of youth work in the integration of young refugees.
