Research done. What’s next?

Formally, the NGOST team has finished online fieldwork, in the city we chose in Catalonia, Spain.

Blog: Preliminary review of the fieldwork data from Slovakia

NGOST is a 24-month comparative research project conducted in three EU countries: Hungary, Slovakia and Spain. It aims at critically examining policies and programmes that support school-to-work transition (STWT) reaching out to Roma youth. It focuses particularly on the ‘NGOization’ of STWT programmes, that is the delegation of state functions to private entities, as a technique of neoliberal governance of minorities.
