Since January 2010, IRIS is a partner in the European research project: “Governance of Educational Trajectories in Europe. Access, coping and relevance of education for young people in European knowledge societies in comparative perspective (GOETE)”.

The study is about educational careers of children and young people from the transition out of the primary to secondary education up to the transition in further education or training programs.  It deals with the social embeddedness and regulation of educational trajectories and the interaction between formal, non-formal and informal education as well as the relationship between education and social support. Its focus is on access, management and relevances of education in the educational careers of disadvantaged young people.

The study is based on the combination of CV and Governance Research in a comparative perspective. It is about different constellations of inequality in and because of  education, as well as different conditions between the education system and the welfare state, respectively school, youth services and everyday worlds.

The study follows a mixed-methods approach, consisting of surveys with students and head teachers, case studies in schools, interviews with experts, in education policy responsible and influential representatives, as well as a comparison of models of teacher education.

There are 13 partners from 8 European countries involved (Germany, Finland, France, Great Britain, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia) and different disciplines (Social pedagogy, school education, comparative education, political science, sociology, social work, economics).

The project is funded over three years in the 7th Framework Programme of the EU, coordinated by Prof. Dr. Andreas Walther at the Institute for Social Education and Adult Education of the University of Frankfurt/Main.
