Introduction

This research highlighted a widespread stereotyping of young people in a range of arenas – at school, in their local communities and in the media. The research concluded that the young people interviewed saw their institutional relationships with adults as for the most part unequal, troubled and rooted in stereotypical ideas about their attributes and abilities.
