Departmental Research Projects


A research project of the Department of Geography.


YouCitizen is a comparative, multi-level ethnographic research project that examines the efforts of international organisations, civil society groups, and states to foster citizenship among youth in divided societies. Such efforts are often complex and paradoxical, simultaneously promoting global cosmopolitanism within civil society as well as seeking to strengthen a sense of national identity or belonging, even when aspects of national identity have been a source of division.
