generating awareness of disadvantage and injustice in society for participants
The article aims to examine whether projects dealing with inclusion affect young people differently compared to non-inclusion projects. The biggest difference is that inclusion projects trigger young people’s awareness of disadvantage and injustice in society, a lot more than is the case in non-inclusion projects (the mean score for inclusion projects lies an extraordinary 0,33 higher than for non-inclusion projects on a scale from 1 to 4).

Evaluierung der Aktivität
This article is based on an inclusion analysis of the data provided by the RAY Network (Research-based Analysis of Youth in Action) with partners in 20 European countries (status 2014). The respective research instruments were developed by the University of Innsbruck, Austria, in cooperation with the RAY partners. The data of the RAY research project indicates that the Youth in Action programme (now Erasmus+ Youth) is a good tool to reach its ‘equity and inclusion’ aims. The effects of ‘thematic inclusion projects’ on participants were contrasted with the effects generated by ‘non-inclusion projects’.
