This chapter shows how weekly Participatory Action Research Team for Youth (PARTY) meetings facilitated the deepening of critical consciousness and the formation of a collective, oppositional political identity among the youth participants. This, in turn, enabled the exercise of political agency. This deepening of critical consciousness was not primarily a result of the formal “research” conducted in the group, but rather of the dialogic process of open-ended critical reflection that occurred in weekly meetings.

Keywords:   Participatory Action Research Team for Youth, meetings, political identity, political agency
