INCLUDE and the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs will jointly organize a conference on ‘Boosting youth employment in Africa: what works and why?’ on 30 May.
Creating productive and sustainable jobs for African youth on a large scale is a priority issue in international dialogues. This conference wants to provide a platform to Dutch, European and African policymakers and other stakeholders to exchange knowledge and the latest research evidence to formulate solutions with impact. Young African entrepreneurs from e.g. agribusiness and the tech sector as well as (political) youth leaders will be present to share their successes and challenges.
Participation in the conference is on invitation only.
INCLUDE facilitates an online debate in preparation for the conference through its ‘Question of the Week’. The input gathered will be used for a synthesis paper with the newest knowledge on youth employment in Africa, to become available before the conference. Keep an eye on the INCLUDE website, Twitter, Facebook or the ‘What’s New’ newsletter to stay up to date. Or join the discussion on recently launched questions:
