New Book: From education to employment? Young people’s trajectories in protracted crisis


Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) International Development Research Centre (IDRC)

This book, “From education to employment? Young people’s trajectories in protracted crisis”, is the product of a collaborative project conducted by the Centre for Lebanese Studies (CLS) at the Lebanese American University in Beirut and the Centre for Development and Emergency Practice (CENDEP) at Oxford Brookes University together with young people in Lebanon and Jordan to understand what shapes their trajectories from education into employment when in protracted displacement.

The project aims to understand how young people experience and make sense of the restrictions that accompany their different statuses as nationals and refugees, and the impact these have on their trajectories. Since its inception, our study sought to open spaces for the co-production of knowledge and provide a deeper insight into young people’s trajectories and experiences in education and employment. This commitment to work with, rather than on young people, lead to different collaborations, and artistic productions in each country, which can be found in the newly published book.
