To enhance cooperation between different institutions of the EDEN project, Deni Mazrekaj from KU Leuven has been appointed visiting scholar at Maastricht University. Deni is undertaking collaborative research with Prof. dr. Sofie Cabus on the impact of high school dropout on labour market outcomes. Recently, both the European Union as the United States have devised plans to tackle early school leaving in the Europe 2020 strategy and the Dropout Prevention Act, respectively. Given that this topic is relatively unexplored, it is both challenging as exciting to join forces and conduct this research to attempt to aid policy-makers in understanding the consequences of high school dropout.
