Published once every two years by the UN Department of Economic and Social affairs (UN DESA), the World Youth Report on Youth Civic Engagement takes a good look at young people’s participation in economic, community and political life. The report offers and proposes unique and out of the box perspectives and ideas on youth engagement and participation. The report is also expected to generate dialogue, and serve as a tool for policy discussion and action between youth and government.
The report provides insight on 3 thematic areas: economic, political and community engagement. The objective of the report basically is to provide a basis for policy discussions around youth engagement to ensure that young people are able to participate fully and effectively in all aspects of the societies in which they live.
