Session Abstract

Led by young activists, with activist scholars and practitioners, we will examine the innovative social justice strategies of young activists and human rights defenders advocating for social change. While there is ample attention on what does not work, this interactive roundtable will make constructive contributions by analysing how young people’s social innovations are creating positive change across the world. Together, we will also consider how development scholars and practitioners can most effectively promote solidarity with today’s youthful peace and justice movements.
