FROM PARTICIPATION TO INFLUENCE: CAN YOUTH REVITALISE DEMOCRACY?
The 3rd edition of the Strasbourg World Forum for Democracy engaged with young people and with decision-makers and opinion-formers in a reflection on the patterns of youth exclusion and involvement. It explored new ways of engaging the youngsters in re-visioning the democratic arenas of today. As every year, the Network of Schools of Political Studies (over 550 SPS participants) actively participated in the Forum’s discussions, shared ideas and experiences with other Forum participants and planed future cooperation.
In addition to the main programme, special side events for School participants included visits to the European Court of Human Rights, regional and bilateral meetings and a diploma ceremony.
