Independent and cutting-edge analysis on global affairs

 

In this issue of Turkish Policy Quarterly we focus on one of our salient  priorities :Youth. In particular, we concentrate on youth participation - within Turkey and the EU – in politics, social change, cultural  exchange and economic development. We question  whether today’s youth is more sceptica l about shaping the future than past generations, lay out the structural and cultural obstacles they face, inquire into the extent to which the plentiful Turkish  youth  constitute added  value in Turkey’s bid for EU membership, and  explore  the important role of youth in engendering tolerance, enriching democratic practices, enlivening  the economy  and  motivating Europens to a more stronger Union.
