CYCL takes its point of departure from a norm critical perspective, with the purpose of highlighting issues surrounding people’s participation, reproduction and resistance to asymmetries of power and exclusion related to class, gender and ethnicity. Also central to the work and focus of CYCL studies include: how different categorizations impact each other, change, and effect identity constructions, learning, as well as, relationships of power and intersectionality. Through the studies and analyses of how power is filtrated, reproduced and transformed by and through social positions, CYCL seeks tools to understand how learning and identity is impacted by the way people view their own and other people’s gender identities and class positions.

Today’s society is characterized by extensive structural and cultural changes, which also make a mark on institutions and everyday life. This concerns in part global changes, and in part local expressions that structural changes have upon people’s everyday lives and education. In relation to these changes, children’s and adolescents’ learning and meaning making processes are examined. Other purposes include highlighting important issues such as inclusion and exclusion in society. Thus CYCL focuses on processes related to power, meaning making and knowledge construction, in everyday life and in institutional contexts.
