Who We Are

The Urban Youth Research Network (UYRN) is a partnership of global, regional and national stakeholders that, through research and knowledge sharing, works towards curbing diverse challenges faced by young people around the world.  The youth bulge experienced by most urban areas presents a unique opportunity while it also brings challenges. Establishing a global understanding of these issues and their consequences is something that remains under development. The Network’s main goal is to adopt a holistic, comparative, innovative, participatory and interdisciplinary approach to youth research and knowledge mobilization.
