She has strong expertise in developing mixed method studies and leading multi-stakeholder projects. Ariane is currently one of the project leads on the Basic Package of Support for young people who are not in Education, Employment and Training (NEET) programme – an intervention developed on the basis of rigorous, longitudinal research and several rounds of stakeholder engagements; she also leads the Youth Explorer project, that maps indicators on youth well-being alongside service provision and labour market information at various geographical levels. Both projects are part of the Presidential Youth Employment Intervention.
