Youth and Public Policy in Kyrgyzstan

Published on


This pilot review of youth policy in the Kyrgyz Republic, published by the International Debate Education Association (IDEA), was funded by the New York-based Open Society Foundations Youth Initiative (OSYI) in keeping with the program’s dual mission of (a) supporting young people in their efforts to be agents of positive change and (b) advocating for the full and effective participation of young people in political, social, and cultural life. One of the review’s top priorities was to apply and promote the principles of evidence-based research to assess the impact of existing youth policies on young people’s access to information, rights, and opportunities. Analogous assessments were simultaneously conducted by research teams in five other countries, using an evaluation matrix specially designed for that purpose in 2010.
