PROMISE is a collaborative research project exploring young people’s role in shaping society, focussing specifically on young people ‘in conflict’ with authority.
The Russian PROMISE team is focusing on the engagement and activism of marginalized young people within the current social and political context. The research team, based in the Centre for Youth Studies at the National Research University High School of Economics (NRU HSE) in St. Petersburg have been busy working on three case studies:
Case study 1: New pro-citizen activities of young Petersburgers’ for ‘public morals and order’
Case study 2: Feminist and LGBTQ+ youth activism in St. Petersburg
Case study 3: HIV activism in St. Petersburg and Kazan/Tatarstan
As part of PROMISE, Finnish Youth Research Society conducted two independent case studies that focused on young mothers in multicultural Finland and young people’s spatial occupations and belongings in the media city.
