Youth in Turkey


Turkey’s young men and women are its next generation. They have skills and ambitions, vision and energy. But they need to be given opportunities to utilise these to the fullest. If this can be achieved, the county’s future will be assured and sustainable. As we reflect on how best this can be done, this Report analyses diverse aspects of the issue and suggests possible arenas for action. We are confident that the relevant assessments will contribute to the ongoing debate and wider discussions on youth policy, education, employment, and participation. It will also highlight youth’s needs and aspirations on the national development agenda, augment our ongoing activities and programmes, and help promote an enabling policy environment for more action.
