Policy Brief No. 17. Promoting Substantive Gender Equality in Education: Youth Citizenship

Abstract

The Millennium Development Goals (MDG) agenda requires that education tackle deeply held values that constrain women’s civic engagement in both economic and political spheres. The World Bank proposes a notion of youth citizenship with its five transitions into adulthood – transitions in learning, parenthood, civic participation, employment, and health. This policy brief suggests that the concept of youth citizenship is valuable as a precondition for the promotion of substantive not just formal gender equality
