AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY: Kasozi Abdu Karim is Coordinator of Inter-Part Youth Platform.

The Interparty Party Youth Platform (IYOP) with support from the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) and Democratic Governance Facility (DGF) held the first ever national interparty youth conference in Uganda since the introduction of the multiparty system of governance.

This four day conference held 27 – 30 July at Essella Country Hotel in Wakiso had a guiding theme, for youth, by youth.

The IYOP – being a cooperation framework of the youth leagues of seven major political parties in Uganda, including the CP, DP, FDC, JEEMA, NRM, PPP and UPC – chose this theme because it reflected and suggested viable solutions to the challenges the youth face and which can only be identified by the youth themselves.
