CALL FOR PAPERS
Joint Regional Conference: Governing Youth in South Asia
22-24 September, 2013, Kathmandu
Investigation into issues that are of core importance for youth is a major challenge not only for policy makers and development partners but also for academics. By their sheer numbers, youth is a core constituency and the provision of services particularly to this group is crucial in order to support them for setting up their lives, both professional and personal. Ideally, Youth Surveys not only aim at investigating into the roles of young people as economically and politically active citizens but also at strengthening youth policies. This also implies allowing them to have, and supporting them in having, a critical interest in inclusive democratic governance and active participation in (re-)formulating policies that are of crucial relevance to them, such as health, education, and access to labour markets.
