Dr. Kerstin Schmidt from Bielefeld University, Germany visited the Latvian YMOBILITY team lead by Prof. Zaiga Krisjane on Thursday 30 November and Friday 1 December, 2017 in Riga. She delivered two presentations on categorisations of mobile youth within the EU, and on support measures for young intra-EU migrants, respectively. Drawing on empirical results from the YMOBILITY project, these topics were then discussed by students and faculty members. Of particular interest was the comparison between the perspectives of a mainly migrant origin country, such as Latvia, and a mainly migrant destination country, such as Germany.
