They also become more likely to defend their positions on a political subject matter with greater sense of belonging.

However Youth recognition and participation in world politics is relative on the different continents of the world which we look at in the next episode. 

Key areas for the role of youths in world politics: RECOGNITION, INCLUSION AND PARTICIPATION. 

RECOGNITION: Young people are visibly present in the different parts of the society, Academic Institution, Religious Organization, Cooperate world and even in the Casual Society. Their thriving numbers cannot be overemphasized in the society today. 

INCLUSION: The world’s political organogram ‘must’ factor in sufficient number of youth representation, creating a seamless process of ascendency and discipline. This goes a long way to assure their presence in decision making. 

PARTICIPATION: Youths are one of the most energetic groups in the society strata.
