YEIP Project – The Youth Empowerment and Innovation Project is a 3-year Erasmus+ funded programme that aims to design a youth-led, positive policy prevention framework for tackling and preventing marginalization and violent radicalization among young people in Europe. The project started in March 2017.

YEIP will work with 20 partners from eight EU countries to construct and test innovative, policy intervention models founded on the principles of restorative justice, positive psychology and the Good Lives Model (GLM).

Led by young people YEIP will be implemented through the construction and field validation of tools (YEIP PREVENT model/ interventions, toolkit, training) in 4 environments (schools, universities, prisons, online) in the 8 participating EU member states.

YEIP will lay the foundations for systemic change at the national level and EU levels. The ultimate objective is for the project to help implement the EU Youth Strategy’s objective of preventing the factors that can lead to young people’s social exclusion and radicalization. The success of this youth-led project will demonstrate to European citizens the leadership and determination of EC institutions in rooting out the reasons that lead to young peoples’ marginalization and radicalization, firming up in this way trust and confidence.

YEIP is led and co-ordinated by the IARS International institute. The partnership includes:
