News :

The Foundation P&V  combats the exclusion of young people. Early school leaving and youth unemployment are on top of the societal and political agendas, both in Belgium and Europe. More and more a ‘lost generation’ of young people is feared, which has lost every hope on a good job and a better future. 

Therefore the Foundation P&V is launching a far-reaching operation that aims, in a first stage, to gather the most recent and relevant scientific knowledge on the subject via a call for scientific articles. The prize for research on integration of young people excluded by early school leaving and unemployment rewards articles which are able to elucidate in a rigorous, empirical and original way the causes of and possible solutions for early school leaving and/or youth unemployment in Belgium and/or Europe. The articles can be original articles, not yet published, or articles published after January 1, 2010 that can be republished.

The articles will be evaluated in a first round by three referees with a large expertise in research on early school leaving and youth unemployment. In a second round, a high profile jury will select, among the highest ranked articles of the first round, the 12 winning articles which will be rewarded with a prize of EUR 1,500 each.

Moreover, the 12 articles will be published in a book with a GPRC label (Guaranteed Peer Reviewed Content) and be presented during a European conference that will be held in Brussels on 7 and 8 February 2013. The 12 laureates will be invited to comment their work and debate with field experts, practitioners, fellow researchers and politicians. The conclusions of this conference will determine the sequel of this multi-annual project.

The articles must be submitted before 30 June 2012 to saskia.de.groof@pv.be

For more information, as well as the regulations of the competition and the instructions for submitting an article, please visit the website
