Thinking Youth Issue #3
January 1, 2014
We are pleased to present the third issue of the newsletter for the CSIS-IYF Youth, Prosperity, and Security Initiative. This has been a busy fall for the Youth Initiative. Following CSIS’s move to its new building in September, we hosted several public events and roundtable discussions on topics related to global youth wellbeing. The Initiative continued working toward the 2014 launch of the Youth Wellbeing Index and held a final Index global advisory review in Istanbul in October. Launched in January 2013 in partnership with the International Youth Foundation, the Youth, Prosperity, and Security Initiative is exploring the near- and long-term economic, social, and geopolitical implications of youth development trends around the world. Dr. Nicole Goldin is the director of the Initiative.
