The Conference will bring together researchers from academia across disciplines and policy think tanks from global South and North to analyse the state of policy research, debate and agenda on youth transitions.
The Conference will focus on multiple dimensions of transitions: the youth employment crisis and future of work prospects; youth transitions in situations of conflict and peace-building; and youth participation in civic and political spheres.
The Conference aims at defining knowledge gaps and proposing methods and partnerships for strengthening the policy and research interface on youth transitions. The participation of multiple stakeholders , public and private users of policy research, international governmental and non-governmental organizations will bring a diversity of views to bear.
The event will also discuss the launch of the first Global Network of Policy Research on Youth Transitions. The Global Network will be open for inclusive partnership for policy-relevant research on youth transitions.
