Youth Roundtable

Youth and Human Rights

The Objectives of the Youth Roundtable are:

  • Establishing a better understanding of the difficulties faced by young people today in the exercise of their human rights in light of the current urban context and the concentration of youth-led social movements in cities. 
  • Identifying specific examples that demonstrate the strategic importance for the promotion and advancement of the rights of youth at local, national and international levels. 
  • Contributing to advancing the youth and human rights agenda, with focus on identifying rights that are specific to those of young people in the transition from childhood to adulthood.
