Mobility trajectories of young lives (MO-TRAYL) is a five year research project which studies the relation between migration and young people’s life chances. MO-TRAYL is led by prof. Valentina Mazzucato at Maastricht University. We conduct research in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and Ghana, where we collect data directly from young people. With our research we aim to make a difference for both schools and policymakers, by identifying ways that they can best deal with young people’s mobility.READ MORE
