  7. 7. Our research aim is to understand how young people comprehend ‘politics’ and express this political agency by asking the questions:  How do you define politics?  What aspects of politics, if any, interest you? We have analysed our findings on the research considering different points of views from teenagers that have different ethnicity, backgrounds, ages and genders. These findings show how they intend their political voices to be heard.
