Biographies of young people’s participation in eight European cities. Partispace Deliverable D 6.2.

Year of production: 2018

This report sets out the analysis of young people’s biographies of participation. The aim of the analysis was to explore the relationships between young people’s biographies, life trajectories and participation.

This analysis was based on the assumption that all individuals are embedded in a larger sociocultural context, and the individual biography can elucidate young people’s subjective meaning-making in terms of his/ her individual life trajectory and the participation experiences embedded within it.




The PARTISPACE project provides empirical knowledge on how to broaden the concepts of participation. The core of this knowledge lies in relating individual biographies of young people and the social spaces in which they act in order to understand the meaning of participation from their perspective.
