DFID is committed to becoming a global leader on working with and for young people by 2020. A policy team has been established to take this work forward and they are framing the agenda in terms of transitions through adolescence and into adulthood. Transitions can be affected by forced displacement through delays or accelerations in these life cycle transitions.
Conducting field research in at least 2 different geographical locations (limited to DFID priority countries), this project will comprise new operationally relevant research that will improve decision-making and will inform existing humanitarian and development programming. The research will be youth-led where possible and will generate insights from a wide-range of young people to ensure that their needs and aspirations are better met and that their perspectives are taken into account.
