The Field research was conducted in October 2022 — January 2023.

The study was conducted to identify and describe the impact of the war on the youth of Ukraine, as well as to provide recommendations and suggestions on how to support better and involve youth in the recovery process, particularly after the war.

The following vulnerable groups were the focus of this study:
• youth with disabilities;
• National minorities;
• internally displaced persons (IDPs);
• refugees abroad;
• youth in rural areas.

Based on the results of the research, trends among young people that contribute to the strengthening of Ukrainian society, as well as problems and losses for young people were formulated.
