COURSES (Application deadline 15 July 2016): 2016 Child and Youth Institute, organised by the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA)

The institute is one of the components of the Child and Youth Studies Programme and is aimed at strengthening the analytic capacities of young African researchers on issues affecting children and youth in Africa and elsewhere in the world.

The institute is designed as an annual interdisciplinary forum in which participants can reflect together on a specific aspect of the conditions of children and youth, especially in Africa.

The main objectives of the 2016 Child and Youth Institute are to:

  • encourage the sharing of experiences among researchers, civil society activists and policy makers from different disciplines, methodological and conceptual orientations and geographical/linguistic areas;
  • promote and enhance a culture of democratic values that allows to effectively identify issues facing children and youth on the African continent; and
  • foster the participation of scholars and researchers in discussions and debates on the processes of child and youth development in Africa.
