We seek young youth researchers to support our policy reviews as members of the research team.
Deadline for applications is December 14, 2012.
Many countries have stated their youth policies, but are they executing them? Do these policies allow young people to achieve their rights? How do specific youth policies interact with broader policies that pertain to young people, and what are the results? How can young people get their fair share of policy attention and resources?
The main aim of the review series analysing these questions is to contribute to the elaboration of evidence on which young people and supporting institutions can advocate not only for the adoption of sound national and international youth policies, but for their implementation.
The first round of policy reviews—conducted in six countries across the globe: Estonia, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Nepal, Serbia and Uganda—has come to a close, and the final reports will be published as a series here on www.youthpolicy.org. The first two reports on Youth and Public Policy in Kyrgyzstan and Youth and Public Policy in Serbia are available.
The second round of policy reviews, with the continued generous support from the Open Society Foundations, will begin in earnest in January 2013 with reviews in Colombia, the Czech Republic, Guinea, Hungary, Mongolia, Swaziland and Tunisia. An orientation meeting with the lead researchers and international advisors has taken place in early November 2012. It is for this second round that we now seek young youth researchers to support the policy reviews as members of the national research teams. Note that we explicitly seek younger researchers with the ambition to strengthen youth research across the countries.
