Adolescent Girls, Cornerstone of Society: Building Evidence and Policies for Inclusive Societies
The book is a collection of papers offering new research and insights into the role and potential agency of adolescent girls in meeting emerging global challenges such as demographic transitions, economic crises, climate change and the expansion of technology and innovations.
The papers were originally presented at the international conference “Adolescent Girls – Cornerstone of Society: Building Evidence and Policies for Inclusive Societies” held in New York in April 2010. The chapters are structured around two clusters of questions. The first cluster is related to current evidence; the second examines most effective policies in support of adolescent girls’ empowerment.
