This event is a two-day intensive workshop that aims to examine the salient themes in youth studies such as political participation and activism, juvenile justice, the environment, gender and the mediated youth. Paper presenters include researchers and practitioners from the Asian Social Institute, Ateneo de Davao University, Rice Science Museum of the Philippine Rice Research Institute, University of the Cordilleras, among others.
The workshop will feature keynote presentations from Ronald Holmes (President, Pulse Asia) on The Youth and the 2016 Elections: Pre-election Preferences and Perspectives, Dr Margaret Dechman (Cape Breton University) on Multi-dimensional Life Course Analysis in Understanding Youth Outcomes: The Case of Canada, and Dr Hoon Chang Yau (Singapore Management University) on Indonesian Youth Attitude Towards Difference. The overall goal of the workshop is to publish an edited volume that will serve as landmark material to influence the trajectory of youth studies in the Philippines.
The Development Studies Program (Ateneo de Manila University), Research Center on Culture, Education and Social Issues (University of Santo Tomas), and the Philippine Sociological Society are the workshop’s organisers.
