Stories from young people in times of crisis: a collaboration between research and art
Eight short film screenings followed by an open discussion with young artists
The event is part of a research project entitled From Education to Employment: Youth Trajectories in Jordan and Lebanon in the Context of Protracted Displacement
"دور وضع الشباب في التعليم والعمل في سياق النزوح المطول في الأردن ولبنان.
The research findings reveal a mismatch between education and employment. Insights show that investment in education for youth does not yield better access to employment and employment outcomes. Hence, investing in secondary education may not be considered meaningful for most families in the current socio-economic climate in both countries. The findings lead researchers to question the meaning of education in a refugee setting and the impact of refugee education strategies developed by humanitarian organisations, education clusters, and governments. In eight short clips, the young performers caught in a deadlock share their daily struggles, challenges, and hopes for the future.
