Youth & Participatory Politics Research Network

The MacArthur Research Network on Youth and Participatory Politics (YPP) formed out of recognition that youth are critical to the future of democracy and that the digital age is introducing technological changes that are impacting how youth develop into informed, engaged, and effective actors.

 

YPP Network Action

YPP Action Projects work to bring effective participatory politics practices into youth settings both online and off. The YPP Network will be working in three areas - youth activist spaces, digital platforms engaging in civic and political work, and educational settings seeking to redesign civic education and engagement.

 

 

YPP Network Research

Through quantitative and qualitative research the YPP Network Research seeks to understand the quantity, quality, and equality of young people's civic and political practices online and off, their pathways between the cultural and the political, and the supports that sustain civic and political engagement.
