The Institute is a direct offshoot of the Council’s Child and Youth Studies Programme.
This is the newest of the CODESRIA annual institutes. It was launched in 2002 when the inaugural session was held in Dakar, Senegal. The Institute is a direct offshoot of the Council’s Child and Youth Studies Programme. It is designed to assist in building, sustaining and sustaining capacity in Africa in the analysis and understanding of all aspects of the child and youth question in Africa. Through the work of the Institute, the Council also hopes to contribute to the emergence of a critical mass of scholars and policy intellectuals in Africa who are not only networked with one another but are also able to make substantial contributions to theoretical, conceptual, and methodological discussions about children and the youth, and the formulation of innovative policy interventions attuned to the history, context and realities of the countries and peoples of Africa.
