Voice of youth: Discussion on class, caste, drugs and gangs

This research has been undertaken by the young people involved in the ‘Promoting Positive Diaspora Voices’ project. The group consists of young people aged 15-20 years old from Brierfield and Nelson (East Lancashire), Hayes (west London) and Normanton (Derby).

The group came together in April 2013 at a residential workshop to learn about research techniques and to discuss and agree on topics and an approach. They then spent five months consulting with other young people and met again as a group to agree conclusions and design the report in November 2013.

This report is the product of much dedication, interest and commitment by these young people, and International Alert and our project partners are pleased to have been involved in supporting them to do it.
