Abstract [en]

The current study seeks to enrich our understanding of citizenship behaviour in the setting of meeting places for youth such as youth clubs, by identifying the main factors that may enhance this behaviour among youth leaders. Of special interest is if youth leaders or similar staffers’ empowerment can serve as a mediator between young people’s expectations about influence and participation and the development of their citizenship. Of interest are both empowering processes as well as empowered outcomes. The method used is a questionnaire sent out to young people visiting youth clubs and similar meeting places for the young. In the study, were found that in youth clubs and similar meeting places for youth, empowering processes take place and furthermore that they have possibilities to develop their citizenship. Youth clubs and similar meeting places can be environments for shared possibilities for citizens. To conclude, human, rights, citizenship and empowerment embrace aspects and outcomes concurrently. Keywords: Youth Clubs, Human Rights, Citizenship, Empowerment
