Welcome to UP2YOUTH: Youth - actor of social change

Research Questions Print
The working group on "Youth Participation" deals with the following research questions.


Group specific questions
  • Is there a tangible relation between forms of participation and the degree to which young people from different backgrounds are actively involved and do exercise their civic rights?
  • Does the implementation level of experiences influence the understanding of young people processes of social integration (in terms of needs, access to autonomy, public care?)
  • Are training sessions proposed to young people who are involved in experiences of participation?
  • If yes, are these training sessions based on formal or informal learning? Do these training sessions encourage peer to peer learning?
  • What policy objectives and forms of engagement correspond to young people's subjective interests and preferences?
  • To what extent experiences of participation are taking into account the question of young people life-styles? Do they promote youth culture? Do they lead to a better understanding of young people expectations?
 Policy Level
  • What ways of promoting youth participation do exist in Europe at different levels of decision making? To what extent do these attempts consider young people as experts and actors?
  • What are the perspectives to integrate ‘soft' and ‘hard' policies for young people in a participatory perspective and thereby promote civic participation of young people in Europe?
