The policy recommendations presented here testify to the fact that the needs, realities and contributions of young people need to be addressed continually in political practice and policymaking. They conceive of young people as partners in society now, and not just as the architects of the future. The policy recommendations centre on education, and on the social and public policies that work to minimise violence and support the work of education in promoting non-violence and the centrality of human rights. They highlight dimensions of general policy making that are of relevance to young people and the factors that contribute to violence. (excerpt)
