Centre for Childhood and Youth Research

The Centre for Childhood and Youth Research (CCY) comprises 3 professorships and 25 researchers with expertise in sociology, educational sciences, pedagogy, psychology, economics, and methodology.

We examine the conditions and opportunity structures of growing up against the backdrop of social change and inequalities. A range of theoretical perspectives and multi-methodological designs serve to research the links between policies, education and welfare systems, and social and personal resources for citizenship, identity, health, migration, participation, school-to-work transitions, and well-being.

Our social scientific examination of childhood, youth, and young adulthood produces unique insights that are highly relevant to policy.
We have a track record of academic publications and routinely engage in knowledge exchange and dissemination via scientific reporting (e.g., Youth Report), monitoring (e.g., Health-Behavior in School-Aged Children, Youth Survey Luxembourg), quality development (e.g, non-formal education), and documentation (e.g., Youth in Luxembourg).
