The Lawaetz Foundation is a non-profit organisation, which was founded in 1986. It is active in various areas of labour market, social and urban development policy. According to its founding principle, the Foundation’s main aim is to enable socially and economically disadvantaged people to have access to the labour-training and housing markets through innovative methods of self-organisation.
Core activities of the Lawaetz Foundation include: consulting and project management; building and neighbourhood management; technical assistance of programme implementation; evaluation; applied research and knowledge transfer; and cooperating within European exchange projects (mainly on social exclusion issues).
The practical work of the Department of Consulting, Evaluation and Transfer - as part of the Family Reunification Project - focuses mainly on researching the basis of primary and secondary data analysis, in particular for the evaluation of EU-sponsored programmes; programme assistance on labour market and social policy interventions with regard to implementation, monitoring, and documentation; consulting policymakers, administrators and organisations on the planning and controlling of programmes and instruments; and the transfer of knowledge, action approaches, and best-practice models in the regional, national and transnational contexts.
