Invitation of Paper for National Colloquium on Empowerment of Youth
Date : 10th to 11th February 2011
The theme ‘Empowerment’ has become central to the development process. Empowerment as a concept has been recognized as an important outcome for development and it has received a rising profile as a source for inclusive development. Youth are the priceless resources of any country. However in most of the developmental activities youth are being ignored. Hence it is extremely crucial to address and empower them. At this juncture, the School of Youth Studies and Extension (SYSE) of Rajiv Gandhi National Institute of Youth Development (RGNIYD) is organising a National Colloquium aiming at creating a knowledge base on ‘Empowerment of Youth’ on various dimensions, practices and strategies that will strengthen youth empowerment
as a discipline. It will enable widening the horizon of youth empowerment by drawing necessary inputs from policy makers, academicians, practitioners and researchers from multidisciplinary background and building a database of youth development.
