This report asks: What specific tactics are young people experimenting with to exercise agency and intervene in public affairs? How can these activities grow in quality? What work is required to ensure that opportunities to engage in participatory politics are equitably distributed among youth, including youth who are marginalized from digital access and other forms of privilege?

It draws from insights in the existing literature as well as in a set of interconnected independent studies that are ongoing as part of the Youth and Participatory Politics (YPP) Research Network, an initiative supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
