UNDP Youth Employment Project (YEP)

(July 2016 - February 2017)

The study examines the role of vocational training in reducing violence in the city. It is aimed at the youth (15-29 year-olds) of Karachi's three working class areas i.e. Sultanabad, Korangi and Lyari, where UNDP's Youth Employment Project (YEP) is operational. The research will analyze and attempt to deconstruct the socioeconomic profiles of the youth in order to understand their problems, experiences with violence and perceived solutions. It will focus on the possible impact of vocational training opportunities for the youth on their involvement in violence, concentrating on gender and ethnic differentials
