YRU@BMR Youth Research Conferences
Since 2012, the YRU@BMR hosted bi-annual youth research conferences. The YRU@BMR youth research conferences established a credible platform for sharing youth-focused research information, which ultimately leads to knowledge creation and practical application. During the YRU@BMR conferences, professionals, and students, get exposure to national and international researchers which leads to the establishment of research networks and multi-sectoral collaboration.
The 2018 YRU@BMR Youth Research Conference addressed the online and offline sexual exploitation of children in South Africa.
