CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition


Agora débats/jeunesses is a journal that was created in 1995 at the initiative of the French National Institute for Youth and Community Education (INJEP). A research journal for the humanities and social sciences, Agora débats/jeunesses aims to promote reflection and knowledge on youth and youth policies to better understand contemporary dynamics.
This tri-annual journal consists of a central thematic section, with additional “varia” articles unrelated to the chosen theme. Each issue also includes new books in the field of youth and youth policies, most notably through book reviews.
A scientific journal led by an interdisciplinary editorial board, Agora débats/jeunesses is intended for researchers, but also policymakers, NGO leaders, and professionals, so that these actors can be apprised of the most recent research in the field. It thus contributes to supporting a dynamic research environment and encouraging collective discussion and debate.
