A Comparative Youth Project Between China and Brazil
This project, conducted by Dr. Hongmei Li and Dr. Leslie Marsh, aims to examine the challenges and problems facing youth in impoverished neighborhoods of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and a Chinese city with the intent to help alleviate the effects of poverty and other obstacles to social equality. This project proposes a unique comparative discussion of youth, citizenship and the urban challenges facing two of the fastest growing nations on the global stage. We are particularly interested in the difficulties young girls confront, including discrimination, sexual harassment, gender inequality, access to health information as well as physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing.
