Updates

Look out for the latest updates from this project below.

The Global Youth Forum of the World Bank is taking place right now, gathering more than 150 partners and representatives from the public and private sectors, civil society, and young people themselves. The Forum aims to move the youth agenda forward by building a sustainable Global Partnership for Youth in Development. It seeks to explore what works and what doesn’t—for whom, where and why—and how development can be more open to youth-driven ideas.

The outgoing Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, made youth one of the priorities of his second term, aiming to “address the needs of the largest generation of young people the world has ever known.” We will look back at his entire mandate and the progress made later in the year, but as the campaign for the new Secretary General takes off, it is clear that much remains to be done.

The second working paper in our series is a special student edition completed as part of a practicum requirement for the MA Childhood Studies and Children’s Rights programme at Free University Berlin. On a topic of the student’s choosing that is linked to their current research, the paper explores the application of international guidelines on quality standards for caregivers of children and youth in Cairo, using two residential institutions for children and youth run by NGOs in Egypt as case studies.

Ready to discuss youth policy? Today, we’re launching the Youth Policy Working Paper series! The new series will present research findings on youth and public policy from around the world for discussion and critical comment. The series includes papers on conceptual approaches and design issues, as well as on the impact of public policy on young people. The scope of the series ranges from insights from country or project studies, theoretical discussions of the foundations of youth policy, to the methodological challenges of conducting research on and with youth.

Globally, youth work remains, to this day, a vastly under-supported profession. Much of the infrastructure is absent or lacking, from training and education to evaluation and monitoring. Financial backup is fragile, and too often play- or battleground for political negotiations. The Commonwealth seeks to play a key role in taking youth work forward through professionalisation. Against that backdrop, 300+ youth work professionals met in Pretoria for the 2nd Commonwealth Conference on Youth Work. These are our first impressions.

Wednesday, March 2, 2016 - 14:13

In 2016, we will host the inaugural Youth Policy Labs Summer Academy in Berlin, Germany from the 24-30 July! For 30 international participants, the Academy is designed to ensure that the professionals responsible for young people are skilled, knowledgable and able to implement effective policies at a national level. For full details go straight to our full Academy brochure or keep reading below.

Youth Policy Labs Summer Academy 2016
The aim of the Academy is to strengthen and build the capacity of professionals working on youth policy development. Whether for civil servants, parliamentarians, international agency workers or youth researchers, the Academy aims to provide the latest thinking, tools and best-practice when it comes to responding to the needs, challenges and aspirations of young people.

In November 2013, the Commonwealth Youth Council (CYC) was launched at the Commonwealth Youth Forum in Hambantota, Sri Lanka, held alongside the controversial Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. The CYC is the largest youth representative body in the world, covering 53 member countries and 1.2 billion young people.

The world in 2015 was a mixed bag for young people.

Wednesday, January 6, 2016 - 12:02

The ink is barely dry on the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), signed and launched in September 2015, and effective this month. They assert that “no one must be left behind”, but a newly commissioned piece of research launching today – “From rhetoric to action: Towards an enabling environment for child and youth development in the Sustainable Development Goals” – shows that many children and young people are being left behind – shut out of decision-making processes, unable to access their rights, and prevented from forging productive livelihoods.
