Prof. Dr Robin Samuel is Associate Professor and Director of the Center for Childhood and Youth Research (CCY) at the University of Luxembourg.
The DDRC would be nothing without the team of researchers standing behind it. We all work in the Centre for Childhood and Youth Research at the University of Luxembourg. Here you can discover our team.

Who we are
“We” and “you”. Isn’t it much nicer to be addressed directly on a website? We, at least, find that this way we can more easily tell you about our scientific findings. “We”, that is the totality of youth researchers at the Centre for Childhood and Youth Research at the University of Luxembourg (CCY). Often, “we” also just stands for the DDRC editorial team.

The CCY is located in the Department of Social Sciences (DSOC) at the Faculty of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences (FHSE).
The CCY is a relatively young institution at the University of Luxembourg. It was founded in January 2020 as a successor to the INSIDE research unit. More on the history of Luxembourg youth research here soon.
What we do
The research group, led by Prof. Dr. Robin Samuel, investigates the situation of young people from an interdisciplinary perspective using a multi-methodological approach. The researchers have different disciplinary backgrounds: sociology, education, psychology or even economics.
Research activities include topics such as #transition from school to work, #social engagement, #citizenship, #migration, #leisure activities and #identity. We also conduct research on #family life, #values and attitudes, #non-formal education, #future prospects, and #health and well-being of youth.
One concern of the research group is to establish and maintain a continuous dialogue with politics and youth work, which has led, among other things, to the implementation of the National Youth Report, which is published every five years. In addition to its research activities, the working group is dedicated to documentation, evaluation and consulting tasks.
