The ‘Abused no More: Safeguarding Youth and Empowering Professionals’ (AnM) is a ground breaking, evidence based e-book written within the framework of Erasmus + Key Action 2 for Youth. The book was written within a 3 year youth led programme that aimed to create, support, develop and serve a strategic partnership in the area of youth-led training, educational and awareness raising activities that will allow better integration of marginalised youth, particularly those from migrant groups, and with an emphasis on gender based violence.
The e-book brings evidence from the UK, Poland, Cyprus, Romania and Italy while analyzing the emergent findings in a comparative perspective for Europe. The legal literacy of marginalised youth at risk of social exclusion was assessed while particular emphasis was put on different types of abuse faced by young migrant women.
The Abused no more partnership is launching a call to collect inspirational projects in the youth discrimination field. We are looking for examples of good and promising practices of projects and activities aimed at tackling youth discrimination in different fields and through various methodologies.
Silva Mendes, Director for Youth and Sport at DG for Education and Culture, EC said: “Abuse no more”, introduces the notion of legal literacy in our formal education systems, in a rather innovative way to prevent marginalisation and social exclusion. My Voice – My rights gives us the opportunity to re-discover our legal systems and seek in there solutions but more importantly it makes us realize that individual rights are not merely a tool of preventing marginalisation but at the same time a reflection of our European values such as freedom, tolerance and non- discrimination. Re-exploring our roots and our common cultural heritage can be an effective answer to the multiple crises Europe is facing.”
Youth Advisory Group
As a user led organisation, IARS runs the Youth Advisory Group. YAB is a team of young volunteers aged 15 – 25 from different backgrounds and circumstances who are aware of the problems facing young people in today’s society and who are interested in an opportunity to do something positive about these issues. This body will be consulted at all stages of the project. This is an excellent opportunity for young people to get their voices heard and to address issues that are important for them.
The AnM partnership has developed and designed the training material and resources delivered in each partner country and are freely available online on this page.
The Abused No More project is an opportunity for young people, professionals and organizations dealing with discrimination, legal literacy and abuse prevention to network in order to share information, practices, experiences and useful tools across Europe.
