Uitgebreide vaknaam Conceptions of youth in policy and research
Leerdoelen On completing this course,students are able to:
- identify conceptions of childhood, youth and adulthood in policy and research
- identify relations between youth policy and youth research and social practices of 'being young'
- understand practical consequences of meanings of youth as social category, from multiple perspectives
- review and discuss relevant literature
- communicate and cooperate in learning communities and in the international classroom
Omschrijving The ways in which childhood, youth and adulthood are conceptualised and understood across different countries, vary widely. This variety of meanings is reflected in the ways in which issues concerning these social categories are addressed in policy and research. In turn, these conceptualisations will shape social practices, thus inhibiting or enabling the improvement of these practices. The interrelatedness of practice, policy and research - a central theme of the mastertrack 'Youth 0-21, Society & Policy - is thus an important perspective in this course. Starting from a general introductory framework, students will study and discuss particular cases in which childhood, youth and adulthood are conceptualised in policy and research. An international, comparative perspective is used to deepen students' sensitivities and understandings, and to invoke critical reflection. Working in small groups, students and tutor/teacher will create a learning community, enabling the exchange of knowledge, perspective and experiences.
