The Conference will bring together researchers from academia across disciplines and policy think tanks from global South and North to analyse the state of policy research, debate and agenda on youth transitions. It will focus on multiple dimensions of transitions from the youth employment crisis and future of work prospects to youth transitions in situations of conflict and peace-building and youth participation in civic and political spheres.
The Conference aims at defining knowledge gaps and proposing methods and partnerships for strengthening the policy and research interface on youth transitions. The participation of multiple stakeholders, public and private users of policy research, international governmental and non-governmental organizations will bring a diversity of views to bear.
The immediate outcome of the Conference will be the launch of the first Global Network of Policy Research on Youth Transitions, which will galvanize inclusive partnerships for policy-relevant research on youth transitions.
The Conference will include several sessions and panel discussions open to the public and will be held in Geneva on 20-21 February 2020 in the Auditorium Ivan Pictet, at Maison de la Paix.
