vote paper

December 2014/January 2015

The Forum for Youth Participation & Democracy (FYPD), a 4-year project established by Cambridge University in 2011 to explore the problem of youth exclusion in decision-making, has now drawn to a close. In 2015, the work on civic engagement, consensus building, and peace education will be taken forward through a new research programme.

The Forum’s Director, Dr. Henry Tam, is continuing to lead the ‘Question the Powerful’ political education project, and you can contact him via email ( or visit his blog, ‘Question the Powerful’.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported or contributed to our work, and we look forward to working with you again in the future.
