European research shows that participants in international mobility projects report a clear positive impact of their participation on their competences, their behaviour and their values. But what’s more, these international projects have a significantly higher effect on young people with fewer opportunities (YPFO). Compared to ‘well-off’ young people with most opportunities (YPMO), those with fewer opportunities systematically rate the effects of an international youth project more positively. The data of the RAY research project indicates that the Youth in Action programme (now Erasmus+ Youth) is a good tool to reach its ‘equity and inclusion’ aims.
