Dr. Małgorzata Wójcik from the SWPS University Affiliate Faculty in Katowice discussed her research with peer groups. Among others, the INKLA project revolved around aggression in schools. Recommendations on how to react to violence at school, issued to both students and teachers, were issued as a result of the project. Dr. Wójcik developed a participatory approach in her work, namely by engaging the students affected by bullying and similar behaviors in the project.

In the second part of the Symposium, more transnational approaches have taken center-stage. Professor Anne White from the University College London presented a paper about researching young people in local communities. Professor White is a member of the Peer Groups & Migration project team and has been researching Polish migrants and local communities they originate from for many years, often using a transnational lens to discern migrants’ social ties.  Then, Dr. Agnieszka Radziwinowicz shared her experience on researching migrants in local communities.

The discussions continued into an informal part of the meeting, as the invited guests and Peer Groups & Migration project team visited the Neon Museum and ate dinner at Szklarnia restaurant in Soho Factory.

International Symposium Researching Young Lives

by youth 0 Comments

The body of knowledge on young people entering adulthood remains fragmented and requires systematization. There is insufficient data about social behaviors, personal and professional experiences, and life choices of young people. Therefore, we need more studies to understand these matters better. The International Symposium Researching Young Lives aims to provide practical information about tools for researching behaviors of young people entering adulthood.

Where: University SWPS, Warsaw, conference room on the fourth floor
When: Friday, 21 October 2016

FOCUS OF THE SYMPOSIUM

The symposium will focus on presenting tools useful in researching the markers of adult behaviors, such as moving out of the family home, achieving financial independence, setting up own household, having the first child, and securing the first job. These events take place in a changing social environment and in various contexts, including peer groups, local community, and internet based media (such as newspapers, television, social platforms, blogs, etc.).

PRESENTERS AND PARTICIPANTS

The symposium is addressed to researchers interested in interdisciplinary research on youth behaviors. The participants and presenters include academics from University of Leeds, University College London in the U.K. and from SWPS University. The symposium links to the “Besties and Migration” research project conducted by Youth Research LAB under the leadership of Associate Professor Izabela Grabowska.
