The Restorative Justice for All (RJ4All) International Institute is extremely excited to launch its Youth Voice Jornal  special issue “Young People Doing Politics” with guest editors, Professors Angela Stienen and Omar Alonso Uran Arena.

The issue highlights young people around the world engaging in and influencing politics within varied and challenging environments.

Over the past few months, the world has witnessed how citizens around the globe have taken to protest in cities. Protesters have staged their discontent on streets and squares. Connected through the internet, protesters in one city have been inspired from events in cities elsewhere. The second decade of the 21st century has been a decade of massive street protests heralded by the Arab Spring. The protagonists of these mobilisations have been cities and urban youth, among them a conspicuous number of young women. 

The Youth Voice Journal provides a platform that allows academics and young people to publish their research on a peer-reviewed platform in the hopes that this collection of evidence-based research changes the way we view matters that affect us all.
