Youth in the Northern Caucasas : from risk to opportunity (Russian)

This study, Youth in the Northern Caucasus: from risk to empowerment, examines the socioeconomic situation of young people in the North Caucasus and the Russian Federation as a whole. The North Caucasus is the most disadvantaged region of Russia, characterized by high poverty levels, a large youth population, high youth employment, poor educational preparation for the job market, and numerous security risks. This report builds on the positive experience of youth policy and programming in the country and recommends a comprehensive approach to youth inclusion and empowerment, including larger and better-targeted investments for youth. The study emphasizes the need to build capacity for youth programming at municipal and republic levels to effectively address the needs of young people. To address the interrelated educational, health and livelihood needs of young people in the North Caucasus and the Russian Federation as a whole, this report advocates a multidimensional youth policy, implemented through greater support to the school-to-work transition, non-formal education and youth participation in decision-making processes.
