Dr Jones Adu- Gyamfi (2014) Young People’s Participation in the Formulation and Implementation of Ghana’s Youth Policy

This article examines how young people participated as strategic stakeholders in the formulation of Ghana’s youth policy. It employs a step-by-step analysis of the strategies used to involve young people in the formulation of the national youth policy of Ghana. Findings show that although young people had limited opportunities to participate in the formulation of the youth policy, they have been excluded from the implementation process. The article concludes that the limited opportunities given to young people to participate in the formulation of the youth policy signifies a gradual drift towards youth engagement in the formulation of public policies in Ghana.
