Autonomy Through Dependency. Histories of co-operation, conflict and innovation in youth work

Hotel Hanasaari, Espoo, Finland

5th History Seminar of Youth Work in Europe

Sunday 8 – Tuesday 10 June 2014, Hotel Hanasaari, Espoo, Finland

The theme for the 5th History Seminar of Youth Work in Europe is Histories of co-operation, conflict and innovation in youth work. The seminar carries on a series of international conferences which began in Blankenberge, Belgium in 2008. It continues to explore the identity and meaning of youth work through histories of the youth field in European countries and beyond. The approach is thematic: How can histories of co-operation, conflict and innovation help us to understand the current status and tasks of youth work and its future challenges? How has youth work been able to react to changing youth conditions, social and economic uncertainties and pressures? What role have the co-operative relations, both with other sectors and within the youth field itself (research, policy and practice), played in this process? In short, how is the identity and autonomy of youth work constructed through dependencies, both external and internal?

Organizers: Finnish Youth Research Network  and the Ministry of Education and Culture in cooperation with the EU and CoE Youth Partnership, Humak University of Applied Sciences and the City of Helsinki.
