Where does youth mobility stand in the complex picture of diverse types of inequalities that affect youth and the content of their mobilities? In the light of this question, with this special issue, we look at the hindering and fostering factors in the mobility of young people, and examine different facets of mobility (social networks, transnational activities, agency, gender, household decisions) in different types of mobility (considering mobility for volunteering, vocational education and training, higher education including both credit and degree mobility, and employment). The analysis presented in the papers of this special issue will enable the identification of inequalities accompanying youth mobility at different levels. The articles in this issue reveal that when it comes to possibilities for becoming mobile, many other types of inequalities apart from the solely economic ones must be considered (Oxfam, 2016, p. 7; Hargittai and Hinnant 2008), including legal, political, social, moral inequalities (White, 2007) together with gender inequality. This special issue on “Inequalities and Youth Mobilities in Europe from Comparative Perspectives” serves the purpose of revealing how diverse types of inequalities can exist within seemingly equal societies.

Even though intra-European youth mobility is valued as a boost for personal and professional development, few opt for it. While obstacles preventing young people to become mobile have been discussed broadly, less attention has been paid to the obstacles for the youth who are already on the move. We offer this rare perspective in regard to intra-European mobility. We focus on youth in four types: pupil mobility, vocational (education and training) mobility, higher education student (degree and credit) mobility and employment mobility, in six countries: Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg, Norway, Romania and Spain. Our analysis, based on qualitative (140 interviews) and quantitative (N=1.682) data, reveals that the perceived obstacles vary between the mobility types, with the greatest divergence between the educational and work-related mobilities. Obstacles such as lack of financial resources and guidance, the perceived incompatibility of institutional regulations within Europe, are shared by all mobile youth. [less ▲]

This report is a synthesis of the main results of the H2020 project MOVE – Mapping mobility, institutions and structural effects of youth mobility in Europe. Over three years the project MOVE has provided a research-informed contribution to a systematic analysis of intra-European mobility. The project departed its work by differentiating six mobility types that have diverse institutional frameworks, age specific constraints and scopes of action. The project has thus analysed and reconstructed mobility patterns that lie across different types of mobility, which are: • student mobility for higher education, • international volunteering, • employment mobility, • mobility for vocational and educational training, • pupil’s exchange, • entrepreneurship mobility. These identified six mobility types have been investigated in the following six European countries: • Germany, • Hungary, • Luxembourg, • Norway, • Romania and • Spain. [less ▲]

How do foreigners, who come to Luxembourg for work, discover the city through sport? This is one of the questions asked during ethnographic research focusing on a sports group in two research organisations employing a large percentage of foreigners. The inductive approach of grounded theory was developed for the exploration of the working migrants’ sensitive experience of integration into the new country. The concepts of interaction and integration, borrowed from the Chicago School, were the theoretical tools for analysis of the data collected through observations, interviews, and maps of the working environments. The article discusses the integration of its members into the city, as well as their interaction with the spaces outside their work in various degrees and explores how, through the sports group at work, foreigners working in the country discover places that are otherwise limited to outside of their working space. The analysis concludes by showing how running in/with the group serves as a medium through which people interact with the city and its history and build their own story in the city. [less ▲]

The primary question of the article is “What makes different people come to an unofficially organized group and do sports together on a daily basis?” Against the background of the societal norm to do sports in order to be healthy, each of the members of an informal sports group sets goals and objectives, ranging from keeping oneself fit, slim, or muscular; these objectives are juxtaposed with the specifics of their professional activity and intellectual work. Workouts within this group are an interesting example of the ambivalence of how people individually set own goals but need the group to achieve them. Furthermore, the goals are achieved through group-building by sharing common emotions such as suffering and empathy. This article is a part of ongoing research, which follows the grounded theory and analyses the group through observation of participants over first six months of the existence of the group. We conducted fifteen semi-structured interviews with the members of the group and performed qualitative analysis of documents. [less ▲]

Transition from study to work is considered as the end of youth. How doyoung people prepare to enter the labour market? What are the strategies youngpeople utilise to become employed if it occurs in another country, as in the case ofemployment mobility? To answer these questions, the proposed article focuses on howyoung people move and enter the employment in other destination countries.Alongside with the literature on youth and transition we also observe that youngpeople equally experience challenges of matching their skills in the destinationcountries. They relate to inequalities on the job market depending on their skills, theirqualifications, the type of jobs, their working experiences, etc. The discussions in thispaper thus first touch upon the topic of inequality with regard to the process ofrecruitment and becoming employed. Second, they draw attention to the inferiorpositioning that young people are prepared to put themselves into when entering thelabour market for the first time and emphasise the fact that young people oftenexperience discrimination and unequal treatment when they complete education andapply for jobs, on the grounds of being young and inexperienced. As a result, such apositioning often puts young people in a vulnerable situation, which they accept andendure as long as they are promised work. Furthermore, by focusing on how youngpeople enter the labour market in the receiving country, the paper also exploresstrategies that young people apply for being employed, becoming integrated in thelabour market, overcoming inequalities in employment and finding ways to cope withthese challenges in the labour market, as well as their own social lives in thedestination country [less ▲]
