The Young Academics (YA) Network was established in 2002 as a loosely-structured branch of AESOP. The YA provides a platform through which young academics can share their ideas in an open and inclusive environment, challenging and supporting one another with the support of senior AESOP members. The YA are managed by a Coordination Team (CT) of five democratically-elected YA members. Each CT member is elected for two years. Every year, two or three members are replaced, ensuring the necessary continuity. One of the second year members acts as the YA CT Chair and has an official place on the AESOP Executive Committee. As such, the Chair of the YA CT is the voice of the ‘young’ and watches over all of their concerns within AESOP. The last three YA CT Chairs were Lauren Ugur (2014-2015), Nadia Caruso (2015-2016) and Karel Van den Berghe (2016-2017).
