— theme: Skills for Youth, Youth Employment Policies and Programmes
— country: Viet Nam
— type: Working Papers

Overseas Development Institute 2011 - The purpose of the project was to ascertain youth perspectives on their vulnerabilities and obtain qualitative data on key questions relating to youth risks, vulnerabilities, development capacities, well-being and future opportunities. In particular, the research addresses a knowledge gap on the social impacts of the global economic crisis by analysing how its effects are being experienced by youth in the three focus countries, Ghana, Mozambique and Vietnam. Additionally, the research will explore if and how recovery is impacting on young people; how the young, particularly the poor, face vulnerabilities in their search for a more socially and economically stable present and future. A strong gender and exclusion analysis, including ethnicity and disability, will be essential.
