African Buddhist Perspectives on Challenges and Opportunities in Youth Participation in Good Governance and Peace Building

Jacob Waiswa Buganga

Abstract


Africa is the second largest continent - originally a mass of black people, who with time, dispersed around the world, for various reasons – and now, the term ‘African’ has been changed to ‘Blacks living abroad’, and people within the so called Black Diaspora. The term youth describes both men and women below 35 years, and at most 45 years. At this stage, they are full of ideas and energy to explore their environments and gain favors from them. Incidentally, the Buddha achieved full status as Buddha at thirty five years of age. With globalization effects, it was possible to integrate youths from anywhere and influence governance.
