Nordic Network of African Childhood and Youth Research (NoNACYR)

Nordic Network of African Childhood and Youth Research (NoNACYR) aims to enhance collaboration among scholars in Nordic countries who carry out research and teaching in childhood and youth studies focusing on the African continent. The Network comprises key research groups, and PhD and post-doctoral fellows from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. Its task includes promoting interdisciplinary dialogue on empirical research findings, collaborative research and publication, and academic and policy debates on research on, about, and/or with children and young people in contemporary Africa. Specific tasks include:
1. To facilitate exchange of research findings and information on African children and youths. This includes theoretical, conceptual, methodological, practical, and ethical knowledge and experiences emanating from diverse disciplines, research projects, and fieldwork contexts.
2. To initiate and foster policy debates between Nordic academics and practitioners on matters affecting children’s and youth’s well-being in contemporary Africa.
3. To institutionalize links between Nordic childhood and youth researchers and students on the one hand and African child researchers and research units on the other.

The network is hosted by Norwegian Centre for Child Research, Norwegian University of Sciences and Technology, and financially supported by NordForsk for the period of 2012-2014.

EU Youth Report 2012

EU Youth Report

The EU Youth Report 2012 summarises the results of the first work cycle of the EU Youth Strategy (2010-2012) and proposes priorities for the next three years. It presents new and revealing statistics on how the situation of young people in the European Union has been affected by the financial crisis.

According to the EU Youth Report, nearly all Member States report that the EU Youth Strategy has reinforced existing priorities at national level since it was launched in January 2010. This includes focusing on education, employment and entrepreneurship opportunities for young people, promoting social inclusion and health and providing young people with opportunities to take active part in society. The EU Youth Report proposes new priorities for the coming three years. The report highlights that youth employment will remain high on the EU agenda. For the coming years, the Strategy should focus more on the consequences of the current crisis on young people. This means more emphasis on social inclusion and health & well-being.

All Member States have submitted national reports which feed into both the Communication and the SWDs. Young people have been consulted in drawing up these reports, and different ministries have contributed. All national reports are posted here.
