Using approaches in international youth research and political science, this project will explore how municipalities and local networks can support the internationalization of local youth work organizations. By establishing a dialogue with researchers, policy makers, local, national, and international stakeholders, this research will examine sustainable methods to provide further support to youth exchanges between Germany and Turkey.
