Evaluierung der Aktivität
Quantitative Fragebogenerhebung (schriftlich/offline), Qualitative Interviewbefragungen (persönlich), Fokusgruppen
In principle, the research on the programme and its activities envisages a combination of quantitative and qualitative social research methods and instruments, in particular surveys with project participants, project leaders and staff of beneficiary organisations as well as qualitative interviews and focus groups with different actors involved in Erasmus+/Youth in Action (E+/YiA). Surveys and interviews can also involve young people, youth leaders and youth workers not participating in the programme and thus acting as control groups. This research project aims to explore a broad scope of aspects of E+/YiA in order to contribute to practice development, to improving the implementation of E+/YiA and to the development of the next programme generation. It is a further development of the Research-based Analysis and Monitoring of Youth in Action, the main activity of the RAY Network between 2009 and 2013.
