Central Asia Solidarity Groups and the Swedish Development Forum are pleased to invite you to a lunch seminar on November 18 at 12-13.00 CET.
Globally, the proportion of people unemployed and not enrolled in education is considerably higher among youth than for the rest of the population. This trend is also apparent in Central Asia but why? Researchers are increasingly invested in analyzing the reasons behind this trend. Azerbaijan, Georgia and Tajikistan share a history as parts of the former Soviet Union and have similar educational systems, yet their economies have taken very different trajectories since their independence in 1991. Through the project “Opportunities and Barriers at the Transition from Education to Work” researchers from Germany and Central Asia are attempting to identify the challenges and opportunities facing youth in these three countries at the onset of their careers. Learn more about their findings from researcher Eliza Medieva by joining us on Zoom on November 18.
This is the first seminar in a two-part series arranged in a collaboration between the Central Asia Solidarity Groups (Centralasiengrupperna) and the Swedish Development Forum (FUF). The next seminar takes place in December and will focus on women's rights in Kyrgyzstan. Please keep an eye out for the invitation to our upcoming seminar on our social media accounts!
