Abstract

The major aim of the PATHWAYS Post-Doctoral Fellowship Programme is to stimulate innovative, interdisciplinary, and comparative research of productive youth development. Participating institutions include the UCL Institute of Education in London, the Universities of Helsinki, Jena, Tübingen, Stockhom, University of California, Irvine and Michigan State University. The mission of the programme is to promote the next generation developmental scientists and to facilitate a better understanding and discourse with different stake holders about how to equip young people for mastering the challenges of growing up in a changing social context. PATHWAYS Fellows in collaboration with their mentors investigate the antecedents, processes, and long-term outcomes of youth transitions, as well as the factors and processes promoting human competences, especially among young people deemed to be at-risk. Training and mentoring is provided to the Fellows to enhance understanding of diverse approaches to the study of productive youth development and to engage in constructive debates with colleagues from different disciplines. The Programme helps to foster international and interdisciplinary research and exchange of ideas. It enables the Fellows to gain up-to-date skills for addressing research and policy questions that require combined approaches and a synergy of ideas. A ‘Virtual Institute Approach’ has been adopted, not limiting activities to one physical location, but pooling the expertise of several partner institutions that are connected by shared research interests, projects and existing collaborations. The administrative core is based at the Institute of Education at the University of London, but many of the PATHWAYS’ activities occur at the participating sites. There are regular joint workshops and conferences, bringing together scholars from around the globe, facilitating international networking and exchange.
