Abstract

In the latest post from our series on youth participation, Gerry Stoker challenges the idea that the innocence and political inexperience of young people is a problem we need to solve. Instead, he argues that young people have a less fixed view of politics and are more willing to believe it could be better. He makes a proposal to put real policy-making people into the hands of young people by giving their elected representatives the right to call referendums on issues of their choosing.
