Putting Young Africans to Work: Addressing Africa’s youth unemployment crisis draws on a series of Dialogues held in May 2011 with the governments of Zambia, Mozambique and Swaziland. The Dialogues were convened by The Brenthurst Foundation and com- prised distinguished experts from the United States, Costa Rica, Argentina, the Ivory Coast and South Africa, all of whom contributed to this volume. With diverse backgrounds in government, business, policy implementation and academia, each expert brings a unique perspective to bear on the pressing issue of youth unemployment in Africa.
