Assessment and Mapping of United Nations Research on Youth
The United Nations has always recognized the importance of addressing the principles, ideas and potentials of youth in order to achieve society’s goals. Noting the importance of youth to development, the United Nations have decided to analyze the work that the organizations have been undertaking and to map out future directions for youth research. This report contains, on one hand, surveys of existing UN research activities and it identifies, on the other hand, basic elements of a future UN research strategy.
