The body of knowledge on young people entering adulthood remains fragmented and requires systematization. There is insufficient data about social behaviors, personal and professional experiences, and life choices of young people. Therefore, we need more studies to understand these matters better. The International Symposium Researching Young Lives aims to provide practical information about tools for researching behaviors of young people entering adulthood.
