Manchester Metropolitan University



 

The Manchester Centre for Youth Studies (MCYS) was established in 2014.‌ Our vision is to become world leaders in enabling and creating youth-informed, youth-led research which will positively impact on young people’s lives and increase academic understanding. It is important that young people have the opportunity to participate in research that may affect them. MCYS embraces this participatory position as a research centre and strives to engage and collaborate with young people across the range of the centre’s activity through utilising Youth Participatory Action Research (YPAR).

Our specialist areas include: Youth Participatory Action Research (YPAR), Youth Justice, History of Youth, Youth Culture & Subculture, Urban Youth Language and Identity, Youth Gangs and Violence.
