Teaching life skills as part of a country's education system can directly increase political engagement, research shows.
The research, entitled Measuring Life Skills looks at citizenship education in schools in North Africa and the Middle East and was co-authored by Roehampton's Dr Liyuan Liu. The findings have now been published by UNICEF and World Bank, and highlight the importance of incorporating life skills teaching into a country's education system if young people from disadvantaged backgrounds are to use their political voice to address entrenched democratic inequalities.
