Abstract

Between February and October 2012, a group of HSRC research interns embarked on a study entitled the Youth-Driven Development Project. The study sought to bring together unemployed graduates to express their views on current development challenges and provide alternatives that could help foster inclusive economic growth, as well as highlight the perspectives of South African youth on current development challenges. Lizzy Mabotja and Hlokoma Mangalaza share their initial findings.
