- Method Material IO1: Developing youth work practices on refugee inclusion
What is Intellectual Output 1?
Innovation Intellectual Output: 01 is a how-to guidebook focused on innovative youth work practices concerning LGBTQI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex) asylum seekers, migrants, and refuge-seeking youth. This guide is based on the experiences, knowledge, and practices of the Newcomers Youth project, which targets young LGBTQI asylum seekers, undocumented people, and migrants in Sweden. Newcomers Youth is an ongoing project of the human rights organization RFSL Youth based in Stockholm, Sweden.
In order to make our youth work methodologies and guidelines graspable for both experienced and non-experienced actors working with young LGBTQI refugees, this guidebook is divided into four parts.
– The first part focuses on queer and asylum terminology that will be used throughout the material, and the provision of more information on RFSL Youth and Newcomers Youth.
– The second part is focused on the ways of supporting LGBTQI young migrants, as well as reflecting on their needs and challenges.
– The third part tackles advocacy work in relation to the target group’s rights and strategic planning for the corresponding advocacy procedures.
– Lastly, the fourth part of this book consists of recommendations, a summary and ideas for youth policies based on both theoretical knowledge and practical experience with the target group.
- Method Material IO2: Innovative youth work and intersectional practices for LGBTQI - YMRA
What is Intellectual Output 2?
Innovation Intellectual Output: 02 is a creation of innovative youth work methodologies and intersectional practices, including guidelines, methodological approaches, and activity proposals through human rights education and Living Library methodologies
In this method material, we will explore the innovative methods and tools created by RFSL Ungdom and the partner organizations together. The outcome is slightly different than in the first Intellectual Output due to the fact that we have collected the common experiences and knowledge from every organization, representing different countries, regions, and contexts. The added value of Intellectual Output 2 is to show that some recommendations are not specific for one type of context or country. We wanted to create methods and tools that can be applied wherever you are in the world.
The methods and tools are accompanied by useful guidelines and some extensive chapters that we think can be beneficial if you want to work with or for the benefit of LGBTQI youth who are migrants, refugees, or asylum seekers.
