What is the state of youth participation in 2018? What do trends, such as rising populism and nationalism and the influence of technology mean for the future of youth participation in Europe? How to understand and define participation?
You can read about it from the fresh publication by SALTO Think Tank on Youth Participation which was written by Alex Farrow and co-created with thinkers from across the European continent. This paper aims to harness collective expertise, experience and perspectives: the first section considers the state of youth participation and explores the models that assist in defining, analysing and evaluating participation. It particularly notes the lack of reliable and comprehensive data and provides an overview of the European policy landscape. Building on this foundation, the second section considers the new and emerging trends in participation and youth activism – such as threats from the far-right, shifting expectations and power and the use of technology as a tool for change.
The course Interreligious Understanding Today has been designed to meet this need. It consists of two modules (part-time and flexible) – 'Exploring the Principles' and 'Addressing the Issues' – which together with Induction and Conclusion weeks lasts for 10 weeks in total.
