Social Issues and Diverse Young Australians: A Report on Key Challenges and Young People's Concerns from the Foundation Project

History

Research statement

Background This report is based on the literature review component of the Foundation Project. This involved a review of academic and grey literature on youth, diversity and social and civic wellbeing in Australia in the context of global trends. Contribution The review had a specific focus on work published in the past five years on social cohesion, participation and digital life, and sought to understand the key issues facing young people in these interconnected domains today. It surveys a range of reports, research, and policy approaches and findings, and academic materials that address diverse young Australians’ experiences and engagement with matters of cohesion, civic and political participation, and digital life. Significance This report outlines the key elements of the four issues identified as most pressing for young people today: discrimination and racism, education, employment, and health. It highlights the literature and synthesis the data in relation to these issues and young people’s concerns about them, to provide the foundation for a research and program agenda for work with diverse young people in a digital age.
