Youth-Inclusive Development: Challenges and Potential in Solomon Islands

Anouk Ride

Political discourse and parliament in Solomon Islands are dominated by older men, making it easy to forget that this cohort of influential people are, in fact, the minority of the population. With seven in 10 Solomon Islanders under age 34, Solomon Islands’ youth population is particularly visible on the streets of Honiara, where large groups of youth can be seen in public spaces and at events. There are, however, few youths in positions of influence or formal decision-making structures in Solomon Islands. Youths are rarely seen in politics and government, and are less likely to be employed. This In Brief examines present exclusion of youths from decision-making and highlights where change is emerging and policy support could be most effective.
