About the dialogue
The researcher-practitioner-dialogue on international youth meetings offers a platform for exchange and cooperation between youth organisations and research institutions in the area of international and intercultural youth meetings. Shared projects, conferences and publications should contribute to reflection on positions regarding current problems and fields of action in intercultural/international youth work and on the quality development of exchange programmes.
Work topics and projects will be amongst other things developed in cooperation with the International Youth Exchange and Visitor Service of Germany e.V. (IJAB) and largely financed by funds from the Ministry for Family, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth.
The organisers of the dialogue are the Thomas-Morus-Akademie Bensberg, the Social Sciences Study Group for International Problems e.V. (SSIP) and transfer e.V.
Aims and background of the projectThe aim of the project was to develop and maintain guidelines and quality standards of networks in an expert group (1) with representatives of different organisations and promotional agencies in the international youth work area of work. This was primarily organised using the example of a bilateral German-South African network (SAGENET) - with the requirement that the results and approaches could later be transferred to multilateral, European networks. The aim of the project was therefore not the evaluation of SAGENET, but trying out suitable criteria and instruments.
