The INTRANSITION project investigates how identity and autonomy develop in adolescence during the transition from primary education to secondary education and the transition from secondary education to tertiary education. Which factors ensure that some youth go through this transition well and that other youth have more difficulty with this transition? As the development of identity takes place in interactions with close others, in which youth receive constant feedback on perceptions of the self, the project investigates how interactions with parents and peers play a role in this transition. In this project, data are collected among 1200 young people, who participate in the study together with their parents and a friend. A total of four measurement rounds take place over a period of 2 years. The project combines questionnaire data with experience sampling and observations of interactions with parents and friends.
