A SOCIAL CONTRACT ANALYTICAL FRAMEWORK FOR THE YOUTH
This document aims at presenting an innovative analytical tool that can help our understanding of the structure and dynamics of social contracts in fragile and conflict-affected countries. A specific focus on “youth” (aged between 15 and 24) is envisioned for this tool to address the specific concerns and demands of a social group that is often overlooked in programmatic work and policy formulation in the areas of political governance and representation, and state-society relations.
Following the example of other political-economy-inspired analytical frameworks, such as state-society or governance assessments, the tool is structured around three main sets of questions.
The ultimate purpose of the analytical framework is to stimulate youth’s participation in political decision-making in fragile and conflict-affected contexts, and to facilitate international actors’ provision of support to these nationally owned and led processes.
