El estudio de caso analiza los resultados y aprendizajes de un proyecto de partici-pación ciudadana juvenil apoyado por Oxfam en Bolivia. El análisis lleva a dos conclusiones principales. Por un lado, la importancia de institucionalizar la partici-pación y representación de las y los jóvenes en los procesos de toma de decisión en el desarrollo local. Por otro lado, la necesidad de capacitación y coordinación para garantizar la apropiación de dichos procesos por parte de las y los jóvenes y para asegurar la diversidad y legitimidad de las ideas que emanan de ellos.

This case study analyzes the results and learning of a youth active citizenship project supported by Oxfam in Bolivia. The study highlights two major findings. On one hand, the importance of institutionalizing the participation and representation of young people in local development processes; on the other, the need for training and coordination to ensure ownership of the processes by young people and to ensure the diversity and legitimacy of the ideas that emanate from them.

The case study is part of a series conducted in the final phase of Oxfam-Québec’s Volunteer Cooperation Program, Program ACCES Innovation, which took place in ten countries from 2015 to 2020.
