RGNIYD will be organizing a National Seminar on Fissures in Development: Youth-at-Risk.

Rajiv Gandhi National Institute of Youth Development will be organizing a National Seminar on Fissures in Development: Youth-at-Risk.
About the Seminar
India is at the cusp of a youth bulge in its population. Sagacity in policies and programmes envisioned for developing the youth potential in the country has a critical role in determining whether this youth population of this country becomes a dividend or a challenge. The seminar seeks to engage academicians, practitioners and students on themes related to Youth who are at risk, whose needs be addressed on a priority basis. Vulnerabilities are often intersected, and it is expected that this conference shall facilitate valuable sharing of information, ideas and practices on critical themes of risk preventions arising from multiple causalities.
Call for Papers
The Seminar welcomes proposals for paper presentation by research scholars and academicians.
A workshop for the sharing of best practices and lessons learned by the Civil Society Organizations will also be organized during the seminar.
