promotion of solidarity as a European core value

soziale Inklusion

Many stakeholders, especially the National Agencies, welcome the programme’s explicit focus on solidarity, in particular in the face of current political developments such as Brexit, the refusal of many countries to reallocate refugees and the rising support for far-right parties. Many have mentioned that indeed the former European youth programmes also promoted solidarity in some ways, however, what is welcomed in the European Solidarity Corps now is the idea that the programme does not promote solidarity as an unintended but welcomed effect, but that it does so by putting solidarity as a European value in the very centre of the programme.

Evaluierung der Aktivität

For the purposes of this research, a mixed-methods approach was chosen for it integrates both, qualitative as well as quantitative methods allowing for a rather panoramic view of the research landscape and thus enabling the researcher to view certain phenomena from various perspectives and angles. [...] In order to facilitate this study, mainly three research vehicles were exploited: online surveys, online interviews and secondary analysis of existing data. Additionally, a mapping of European Solidarity Corps at European level together with a detailed list was produced. While the surveys allowed the researchers to explore important research themes by addressing a larger pool of respondents, the interviews facilitated an in-depth analysis of the themes and issues that have arisen out of the survey responses.
