UN Volunteer Study – A Call for Contributions
Monday, 23rd October 2000 at 12:10 pm

As part of the preparations for the International Year of Volunteers in 2001, the United Nations is conducting a number of research projects on the role of volunteers in social development.

The latest project is a study of the role of volunteers in alleviating social exclusion and in particular it will deal with youth, especially unemployed youth, but will cover the disabled, older persons and ethnic minorities.

The study aims to highlight initiatives against social discrimination and will list volunteer projects from around the world. The results will be sent to the relevant government and non-government bodies in each country.

The United Nations IYV 2001 research and development team is looking for contributions to this study on a number of levels.

Organisations can identify volunteer projects or programs that reduce or have helped reduce the negative effects of exclusion for example a volunteer service directed towards those who are seen as ‘excluded’ in society or those who are ‘excluded’ acting as volunteers themselves.

The Team is also looking for information to add to the general debate about volunteering and identifying the victims of social exclusion.

Anyone interested in contributing to the international study can contact the IYV 2001 team of Francesca Becchetti at francesca.becchetti@unv.org and Henry Valot at henri.valot@unv.org.
