Abstract

The purpose of this article is to identify the main research topics on youth in relation to public urban spaces through the analysis of the articles published in national and international academic journals, mostly from geography. The aim is to acknowledge what has been studied in this field, as well as to highlight how the gender perspective is applied. Overall it becomes understandable that the definition of the concept «youth" is problematic, that there is a challenging relation between youth and public space, and that an intersection of oppressions generates difficulties of analysis. In this sense, social control, leisure, identity or economic inequalities are recurrent topics. With respect to gender issues, there are very few studies that base their research on it, although the perspective is taken into account.
