 The research will look at the current situation, to get an understanding of the social, political, economic and personal factors that help or restrict participation in further or higher education for this highly disadvantaged, and socially excluded, group of young men and women. 

A research project funded by the Framework 7 Research Programme of the European Union, this research brings together and studies five EU countries – Denmark, Hungary, Spain, Sweden and the UK. 

New publications and updates will be added to this site when they become available.

The UK coordinating team is located in the Thomas Coram Research Unit, which is part of the Institute of Education, University of London.
