3 steps forward for social inclusion: read the publications by SiEM project to make international mobility opportunities more inclusive
03 June 2021 | From partners - From our Members
The consortium of the SiEM project (Social Inclusion and Engagement in Mobility) launched three relevant publications to improve access and participation of students from less advantaged backgrounds and underrepresented groups in mobility programs:
- “Maybe it will be different abroad”. Student and Staff Perspectives on Diversity and Inclusion in student exchanges – this extensive research report gathers input of 12.000 students and 750 staff members across Europe and beyond on the inclusion in international student exchanges.
- Guidelines for Inclusive Mobility Promotion. Supporting in- and outbound student mobility – a Handbook developed for International Relations Offices working with in- and outbound student mobility, primarily within the Erasmus+ programme.
- Communication Manual. A practical guideline on how to communicate inclusively with international youth – a practical guideline on how to communicate inclusively with international youth for written, spoken and visual communication.
These tools are an important step forward towards making international mobility opportunities more inclusive, enabling students from all backgrounds to study, work or volunteer abroad. The project is a collaborative cross-European partnership created on the initiative of the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) and involves other eight institutions, including UNICA members Vrije Universiteit Brussel and University of Latvia.
