On 28 September a second policy dialogue on youth employment will take place between political parties, civil society organizations and a few youth organizations. Youth employment is an important topic in the 2016 national elections in Ghana later this year. Youth are not only vulnerable to unemployment, those who are engaged in some form of economic activity are often at work in low-paid and vulnerable jobs.
The first policy dialogue ‘National Policy Dialogue on Youth Employment Challenge in Ghana: What do the policymakers and politicians have to say?’ took please on 13 July and was very successful. The background paper can be downloaded here. The national dialogues are an initiative of the African Center for Economic Transformation (ACET) in Accra, Ghana and are organized with support from INCLUDE.
A report of the day can be found here.
Date: 28th September 2016
Organizer: ACET & INCLUDE
