December 10-11, 2020: Mobility Trajectories of Young Lives

Mobility Trajectories of Young Lives: Transnational Youth in Global South and North (MO-TRAYL) international workshop

As the MO-TRAYL project (www.motrayl.com) enters its last year, the MO-TRAYL team has organized an international workshop with scholars from around the world to give feedback and share insights from their own work.

The MO-TRAYL project combines large scale surveys and long-term ethnographic studies of young people of Ghanaian background who are impacted by migration and are living in Ghana, Belgium, Germany or The Netherlands. The aim is to develop new approaches for understanding how mobility affects young people's lives by moving beyond the conventional analytical categories of 1st and 2nd generation migrant youth or 'left-behind' youth.

The program includes:

Noel Clycq (University of Antwerp)

Ernestina Dankyi (University of Ghana)

Tsypylma Darieva (Centre for East European and International Studies, Berlin)

Hannah Hoechner (University of East Anglia)

Roy Huijsmans (ISS, Erasmus University, Rotterdam)

Nauja Kleist (Danish Institute for International Studies)

Noel Salazar (KU Leuven)

Fabian Schmidt (University of Hamburg)
