Partners in Policy

Thoughts on national youth policies by participants at the Fourth Diploma Course, CYP Asia-Pacific Centre

This paper was prepared by the participants of the fourth diploma course in Youth and Development at the CYP Asia-Pacific Centre in India for presentation and discussion at a Commonwealth Meeting on Government Policy on Youth Affairs, held in Chandigarh, 9-13 March 1979. The meeting was attended by 50 representatives of 26 Commonwealth countries, including Ministers and senior officials. Partners in Policy, one of five major presentations, made considerable impact on the Meeting and influenced significantly the formulation of the ten Principles of Youth Policy which form the core of the report recently published by the CYP entitled Government Policy on Youth Affairs.
