PARTISPACE: Styles and Spaces of youth participation 

The PARTISPACE project starts from the assumption that all young people participate though not always recognised in mainstream contexts. The study explores the different ways in which young people participate in decisions “which concern them and, in general, the life of their communities” in formal, non-formal and informal settings and how this is supported or inhibited by local youth policies and youth work? The project involves in-depth ethnographic research and action research with young people to explore existing and alternative forms of participation. PARTISPACE involves partners from: Bulgaria, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the UK. For further information go to:
