Stakeholders or spectators?

Season 1, Ep. 33

Covid-19 has been part of our everyday life for more than 2 years now. Although young people have been less threatened by Covid-19 in terms of physical well-being, they were more likely than older groups to experience financial and housing insecurity, unemployment and mental health problems. Now as states are trying to recover from the pandemic, we want to take a closer look at the role of young people in this process.

Are they spectators or stakeholders? Are their needs and voices included in national strategies and policy-making processes? 

Malwina Talik (IDM) discusses those questions with her guest Milena Stosic from the OSCE Mission to Serbia.
