Information on vacancy
Period of publication 14.11.2017 - 28.11.2017
Field of activity /
Duties Adolescents Development and Youth Policy Officer


From recent speeches of the President Mirziyoyev as well as his recent decree entitled "On measures to improve the effectiveness of state youth policy and support the activities of the Union of Youth of Uzbekistan", it is evident that the Government is concerned about youth socio-economic marginalization, as well as potential vulnerability of youth to become influenced by violent ideologies. The Government acknowledges the need to accelerate efforts to support young people in marginalized urban, rural or remote settings. The envisaged support includes the provision of formal and non-formal education opportunities, leisure, community and employment support, so that young people may realize their full potential, with the ultimate goal to contribute to the society.

At the 72nd Session of the UN General Assembly, the President outlined a bold vision for the Youth Policy in Uzbekistan and globally to foster positive youth development and minimize the risks of influence of violent ideologies. As the President emphasized, a solid foundation for well-rounded youth is laid in childhood. UNICEF is actively supporting the Government in realization of the rights of the child. Increasingly, UNICEF is focusing on the second decade of life Ц the adolescence Ц which is also the first phase of youth.

The recent research demonstrates that adolescence is the second window of opportunity for cognitive development. It is also associated with increased risks and vulnerabilities. UNICEF welcomes the President's special attention to positive development of youth and realization of their rights and freedoms. With 60% of population under 30 years of age, it is a critical agenda in Uzbekistan.
