Since 1987 Nordic Youth Research Symposiums (NYRIS) have established their position as the leading youth research conference within the Nordic countries. Over the decades, the bi-annual conferences have offered an opportunity for all with an interest in youth research to give and receive inspiring presentations and to participate in stimulating discussions.
NYRIS conferences have had a crucial role both in the formation of the multidisciplinary field of youth research and in the theoretical and methodological development. At the same time the scope of the conference has widened to include not only Nordic, but European and global issues, as the conference has invited an increasing number of participants.
Today, NYRIS11 offers an interdisciplinary forum for dialogue and exchange of diverse theoretical and empirical traditions. We warmly invite researchers from all over the world and across disciplinary boundaries to propose sessions.
