Partners

Since January 1st, 2016, the HBSC Study Luxembourg is realized from a collaboration between the Ministère de l’Éducation nationale, l’Enfance et la Jeunesse, the Ministère de la Santé / Direction de la santé and the University of Luxembourg, co-financed by the three partners.

The HBSC project is conducted by a team of researchers specialized in psychology and sociology. This team is part of the Centre for Childhood and Youth Research (CCY), which is part of the Faculty of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences (FHSE).

The CCY researchers examine the conditions and opportunity structures of growing up against the backdrop of social change and inequalities. A range of theoretical perspectives and multi-methodological designs are used to investigate the links between policies, education and welfare systems, and social and personal resources for citizenship, identity, health, migration, participation, school-to-work transitions, and well-being. Examining the social sciences of childhood, youth, and young adults yields unique and policy-relevant findings. Researchers are regularly engaged in disseminating and sharing their knowledge through scientific reports.

Information and documentation about the projects conducted by the CCY are available on the Jugend in Luxembourg platform.

The Ministère de l‘Éducation nationale, de l’Enfance et de la Jeunesse is responsible for the policy planning and management of formal and non-formal education in Luxembourg (with the exception of higher education). In addition to school-based education, the Ministry is responsible for all extra-curricular provision, as well as child and adolescent’s welfare and children’s rights. Therefore, understanding the factors that influence the well-being and health of every child and adolescent is of great importance for the Ministère de l‘Éducation nationale, de l’Enfance et de la Jeunesse. Consequently, this knowledge can be integrated into different areas of policy-making and contribute to the framework conditions that will ideally support each child and adolescent in their transition to adulthood.

The HBSC project is supported by the MENJE through the Service de Coordination de la Recherche et des l’Innovation Pédagogique et Techonologiques (SCRIPT) and the Service Jeunesse of the Division Enfance et Jeunesse.
