Professional Open Youth Work has a lot of stories to tell. LOGBOOK will bring to you trends, opinions, interviews and insights.

The core piece of every LOGBOOK is our hot issue – for this first edition we have chosen Radicalisation and Extremism and the possible role of professional open youth work in this context. We bring perspectives from three different countries as well as an interview with a police officer and some information on an Extremism Advice Centre that for good reasons is located within the national network of open youth work.

Furthermore we will present the current reality of professional open youth work in different European Countries – Croatia, England and The Netherlands kick this chapter off.

It is important for us to let young people and youth workers have their direct say – this time the voices we hear, come from Norway. We also wish to describe projects, methods and concepts in depth, this time it is even two related projects: Job Ahoi from Austria and Werkt! From the Netherlands, who also show what European cooperation means on a practical level.

In the opinion section we invite experts and opinion leaders to have their say – Howard Williamson starts this one off with looking back on the European Youth Work Convention 2015.

Short reviews of research results, relevant aspects connected to learning and professionalisation and news from the network round the offer up.

Enjoy the browsing of LOGBOOK and join us in the discussion!
