Editorial: Young citizens: youth and participatory governance in Africa (PLA 64)

Holly Ashley

Journal article

All over the world we are seeing exciting experiments in participatory governance. But are they working for the young? This issue of PLA highlights how young Africans are driving change by challenging the norms and structures that exclude them, engaging with the state and demanding accountability. We hope that this issue will enable other participatory practitioners – young and 0ld – to learn from their experiences.

This is the editorial to the special issue of PLA on youth and participatory governance.

Participatory Learning and Action (PLA, formerly PLA Notes) is the world's leading series on participatory approaches and methods. PLA publishes articles on participation aimed at practitioners, researchers, academics and activists. All articles are peer-reviewed by an international editorial board. See: www.planotes.org
