The Young Lives Research Laboratory (YLRL) was founded nearly a decade ago as part of my Canada Research Chair program of research with, for, and by young people. With an eye to modernity and its discontents for youth, the YLRL focuses on young lives in local and global contexts and examines the ways in which modern societies marginalize and treat their young. This presentation summarizes selected work of interdisciplinary and international team projects relating to four interrelated clusters of research: 1) the impacts of technology on young lives over time and place; 2) youth pathways into and out of well-being; 3) re-imagining education with and for youth; and 4) emerging theory and methodology. Data are presented and reflections are made regarding how research conducted by the YLRL informs the World Congress themes of power, violence and justice.
