Youth and Democratic Citizenship in East and South-East Asia: Exploring political attitudes of East and South-East Asian youth through the Asian Barometer Survey

— theme: Giving Youth a Voice
— country: ASEAN, Asia, East Asia, South Asia
— type: Surveys

Key findings of the report suggest that in East and South-East Asia, youth have yet to become equal participants in political processes compared to the older cohorts, and have yet to fully realize their potential role as democratic citizens. Recommendations for those engaged in policy-making and programming for engaging youth meaningfully in the political arena include opening up new spaces and opportunities for youth political involvement; developing the requisite skills and competences among young people needed for their effective participation; and enhancing youth-specific research and data analysis with respect to issues of democratic citizenship. The policy entry points suggested in the report should be further developed within the contexts of various societies, ideally in a participatory manner that includes young people themselves.
