The UP2YOUTH working group on transitions to work has collected a number of research centres that are currently doing or recently have been carrying out research with a focus on the agency perspective in the transitions field.


This list is not meant to be comprehensive, but rather the selection is meant to show who in the field is working on the crossroads of the different research angles that UP2YOUTH is all about: the transitions to work area with a special focus on young people with an ethnic minority or migrant background - and all this under an agency perspective.
