Addressing social exclusion of youth in and from alternative care settings

14Nov2017 15:00 - 17:00


SOS Children’s Villages the Netherlands and the University of Amsterdam are pleased to invite you for our presentation to share the results of our research in six countries in Asia, Africa, Europa and Central America.

How are vulnerable youth (youth in and from alternative care and families at risk of losing care) affected by social exclusion in terms of their human wellbeing, employability and social acceptance? We will discuss how we may mitigate the negative impact of social exclusion of youth after losing parental care and ensure their social and economic inclusion.

Witrh Dr Nicky Pouw, Stefan van der Swaluw and Hugo von Meijenfeldt.
