INCLUDE will organize a roundtable in Arusha, Tanzania on 1 December 2017. At the conference on youth employmentorganized by INCLUDE and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs in The Hague on 30 May 2017, speakers and participants discussed what works to boost youth employment in Africa. The roundtable in Arusha is a follow up to this meeting. This time we will go beyond the question of what works and discuss how things work.
The roundtable will focus on strategic actors for employment creation in Africa. It will particularly look at the roles that different (coalitions of) actors can, or should, play in creating employment and facilitating employment creation. Specific reference will be made to the role of the private sector, as well as the potential for including vulnerable or marginalized groups, particularly women and youth in employment creation. We will facilitate a constructive dialogue between strategic actors from the private sector, international institutions, civil society organizations and government representatives.
