What is the place of young people in society today? This book presents a searching and comprehensive picture of youth, demonstrating both its diversity and singularity, and helping to dispel many of the myths, discriminations, stigmas and prejudices attached to this segment of society. Drawing on a vast empirical research exercise including over 8000 interviews and 40 focus groups in eight metropolitan areas of Brazil, this book explores the most important aspects of young people's social participation and the resulting challenges for public policy. With clear resonance beyond Brazil, this research is designed to inform youth policy strategies in the developing and developed world.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Over the last ten years there has been a growing debate in Brazil concerned with the lack of specific policies for young people in an adverse climate in which the vulnerability of this segment of the population with regard to drugs, violence, market pressures, STD/AIDS has been frequently emphasised. Despite this concern for youth there is a clear lack of good research on the subject. I consider that the publication could be a real contribution to the existing literature and should appeal to both the young people themselves and to public administrators, teachers, researchers and others interested in the theme." -- Timothy Ireland, Education Specialist, UNESCO, Brazil

"The study offers a very substantial picture of young Brazilians' perceptions on subjects where they have an interest and which are being discussed in public bodies up in Brazil to stimulate youth participation in building democracy. Such a publication will be editorially unique in putting forward analysis of a participatory study with young people on the leading issues in debate today as regards the situation of youth in Brazil." -- Pedro de Carvalho Pontual, Educator, Researcher at the Instituto de Estudos Especiais, Pontificia Universidade Catolica de Sao Paulo and Chair of the Consejo de Educacion de Adultos de America Latina
