Partnerships and networking are crucial components of an enabling environment within which youth can contribute meaningfully towards establishing the 'good society'. This article explores the importance of youth networks and organisations and barriers in effective collaboration. Using a rights-based framework, the author explores concepts such as accountability, relevance and ownership, and examines various spheres of youth involvement in matters of governance. She puts forward a number of recommendations that would enable youth to be actors for positive rights-based development.
