The data described in chapter three are presented summarily in the form of tables that focus on a number of key issues. These are: the extent to which YEPP's 10 non-negotiable principles were adhered to; how far YEPP's research structure was implemented and the main outcomes – youth and community empowerment, partnerships, transnational activities, sustainability and impact on public policy. A table summarising the summaries is also provided based on the impacts of well- and partly implemented sites. The significance of the results is then discussed further with especial stress being given to methodology used, and its challenges, and the question of whether YEPP caused the changes that occurred. Since it was not possible to address this question using ‘experimental’ and ‘control’ sites an interpretation based on Lewis’ counterfactual approach was preferred. This provided strong support for the view that YEPP did cause at least some of the observed changes in the local programme sites. The better YEPP is implemented the more confident this conclusion becomes.
