As a result of limited participation in national representative bodies and decision-making platforms, many young people – in response to situations of social and economic exclusion – look to exercise power outside of formal state structure and processes.To identify the complexities, reasons for the low levels of youth participation need to be addressed, with consideration of the challenges and practices associated with youth inclusion in national processes, structures, politics and within electoral mechanisms across the country.At the same time, a call is voiced for engaging youth in this decision-making and scientific research, which enables the country to understand future trends and craft effective public policies that support the building of a capable, balanced and peaceful society.This helps to ensure the role of young people in the decision-making process through researching and analyzing the Lebanese political, socio-economic and cultural contexts and providing policy options.Enhancing research-policy linkages is an effective approach to promote participatory decision-making and to enhance governance in addressing multiple issues of social transformations.
