Music education as an inclusive tool for underage refugees in Europe

The YouSound project explores the use of music as a tool for the social inclusion of underage refugees in Europe. It will make use of qualitative and arts-based research methods through fieldwork in music programs in Greece and Sweden, culminating in the production of relevant outputs for social sciences and policy making. In this way, the project aims to contribute concretely to the promotion of inclusive societies and institutions, in tandem with advancing the Sociology of Art.

The 18-month Exploratory Project is funded by the Portuguese public agency FCT (EXPL/SOC-SOC/0504/2021), and is housed at the transdiciplinary research center INET-md with headquarters at NOVA FCSH.
