Young People’s Political Participation
Conducting a Dialogue (part 2)
Young people are often denied their rights because they are no longer seen as children in need of special care and support, nor are they yet recognised as adults. They are seldom mentioned in policy frameworks in relation to rights such as education, health care, labour, participation and protection from conflicts and sexual exploitation. Sida recognises young people as agents for change and considers young people’s political participation as a high profile issue.
