Conference events man talking

The Centre for Global Youth is hosting a workshop to explore the challenges of researching with/ for/ about youth and young people, and the methodological innovations it is developing to try to tackle these challenges.

These challenges may include accessing young people and young lives, tackling ethical issues, or self-care for the researcher when researching youth who have experienced trauma.

The innovations may include new(ish) methods (e.g. using social media for data collection) or ‘old’ methods that have been updated to reflect the challenges of your particular project. 

This event is free and open to all.
