Educational and occupational opportunities are unequally distributed both according to space and origin: For youth, opportunities for access and participation in the educational system as well as successful transitions from school to vocational education and training (VET) or study to work continue to depend on their respective spatial location, the locational distribution of educational and occupational opportunities in geographic space, and their individual social, regional, and immigration-related/ethnic origin. The spring conference aims to thematically elaborate on the aspects of space and origin that are significant in structuring the educational and vocational integration of youth. The aim is to present current research results on the significance, analysis, interrelationship, and interaction of space and origin (as well as other social dimensions) for the educational and vocational integration of adolescents and young adults, and to stimulate new discussions on the importance of space and origin for educational and vocational opportunities of youth.
