Center for Youth Studies at the National Research University High School of Economics was founded in 2009 through a partnership between NRU HSE in St. Petersburg and the “Region” Research Center of Ulianovsk State University within the NRU HSE development program.
CYS is a research center aimed at large scale international projects concerning youth. It represents a fundamentally new academic space, where experienced researchers as well as students from different universities and different countries are invited for creative collaboration.
Our main goal is to develop a school for youth research that is incorporated into the structure of international social science.
Specialists of the HSE Centre for Youth Studies met with colleagues from the University of Georgia to discuss prospects for collaboration. They discussed the possibilities for development of academic exchange, summer schools, internships and a ‘Social Analysis of Youth’ track in the Master’s programme ‘Modern Social Analysis’.
