Youth Empowerment through Human Rights: Keeping the Dialogue Alive

On Tuesday, March 11, 2014, IIMA and VIDES, in collaboration with the Permanent Mission of Uruguay, organized a Side Event entitled "Youth Empowerment: a Human Rights Perspective," co-sponsored by 25 States and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), to encourage a reflection on the current situation of youth, and to analyze the human rights framework applicable to young people. This analysis involved a discourse between young human rights activists, State representatives, and experts on the rights of youth, and aimed to: (i) identify conditions which allow young people to fulfill their potential, (ii) to emphasize the value of the role of young people as privileged partners in the realization of human rights, and (iii) to encourage Governments and Civil Society actors to engage in constructive dialogue to move the youth rights agenda forward.
