Omschrijving This course acquaints students with contemporary topics in young peoples’ lives, youth research and policy making. We focus on key challenges faced by young people, ranging from health, sexuality, and unemployment to the impact of social media. We discuss how these issues impact development and wellbeing of young people, and take a closer look at current policies and practice approaches and their scientific foundation. This means that for each topic, we will focus on describing the problem or issue at hand to gain familiarity and information, we will conduct a deeper analysis of precursors and outcomes for young people, and we will explore programs for pre- and intervention. Students are expected to actively co-produce knowledge by conducting own research, discussing perspectives and results with the group, and develop implications for practice.
