Youth Academic Production: A Latin American Perspective

Youth Academic Production: A Latin American Perspective

This video was recorded at 21st IPSA World Congress of Political Science "Global discontent? Dillemas of change", Santiago 2009. When we speak of youth participation in politics, one tends to imagine activism within diverse types of organizations, associations or movements. Political participation is in fact a complex phenomenon which takes many forms. Amongst these types of manifestations, questioning, researching and writing is a way of being active in political spheres. Thus, the academic production of political science students is a topic worth reflecting upon. As the Latin American representative of Politikon (IAPSS's academic journal), I have noted at times a certain lack of interest for producing academic material. In this presentation I will engage in questioning why and how academic production in our discipline is important. Pontifical Catholic University of Peru.
