As the only national youth research institute in Korea, since its foundation in 1989 to the present, the National Youth Policy Institute (NYPI) has contributed to the establishment of national youth policy, based on diverse theoretical research and the scientific analysis of youth.
We have especially strived for basic youth research, such as child/youth panel research, strengthening the ability of youth activities and the establishment of important national policy related to their protection and welfare. Also, we are doing our utmost to provide reasonable and practical policy alternatives to solve urgent current issues surrounding youth runaways, violence and suicide. As we have developed various required youth systems and programs, we have, at the same time, also worked on policy research for child/youth rights and improvement to meet the needs of the international society.
NYPI will clearly recognize our given responsibility and role, and become the leading research institute in youth policy, through the qualitative improvement of research and innovative efforts.
We heartily welcome everyone visiting the NYPI homepage and promise to provide diverse and helpful information. We are always open for communication and we will listen to your valuable opinions.
Please visit our homepage often. We ask for your continued interest and support.
