The project aimed to place a particular focus on empowerment and participation of young people of African backgrounds. This focus evolves from the finding that youth with African backgrounds do not only share limits in opportunities for involvement with other young people but do also have unequal chances for participation among young people in general in societies of European countries. Besides opportunities for participation in fields such as education, the labor market, entrepreneurship, culture and the media, this is particular true for the political field. This final project report illustrates the implementation of the project and summarizes its main findings that were generated on the basis of the workshop discussions, feedback surveys among the participants, expert interviews with representatives of African youth organisations in Germany and the UK and an online survey among young people with African backgrounds.
