Long Abstract:

This panel investigates the issue of improving the social and economic empowerment of children and young people across Africa, looking at initiatives that are helping young women and men to take control, to self-determine, and to achieve their life and work goals. Economic limitations are frequently referenced as a barrier to a child or youth’s social mobility, papers and other types of presentations will therefore provide experience or research related to: (1) pathways to greater child social and economic empowerment, (2) enablers to help address the economic barriers in health, education, social protection and other sectors’ programmes; (3) the means to bridge the transferable skills gap from education to the workforce, and make better use of existing creativity and pioneering ideas.
