pitching ideas for Decent jobs for youth
Dear reader,

Eleven research teams presented their ideas on generating evidence on how to boost decent jobs for youth at a meeting in Nairobi on 31 January and 1 February. The meeting was part of the research initiative on ‘Boosting decent employment for Africa’s youth’, which looks at what works and why for youth employment in a changing world. Find out more about the research initiative and the outcomes of this meeting.

After a successful meet up in January for the research programme ‘New roles of CSOs for inclusive development’, we felt that it was time to write a news item to share with you where we are at in scrutinizing the assumptions underlying the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Dialogue & Dissent framework. Also read about the research teams’ experiences on-the-ground in their blogs.

Kind regards,

INCLUDE Secretariat
