The state of political engagements among young people and the challenges they undergo
Youth and Politics
Young people are not “citizens-in-training”, a role where they are often pushed back by education and political institutions. They are actors of today’s democracy. Young people have in many ways taken the leading role in initiatives and movements that proclaim the urgent need to deepen and expand democracy. Young people are not ‘victims’ or ‘problems’ as often claimed, but diverse and critical stakeholders in democracy.
