Youth Engagement For Peace and Social Stability: Theatrical Paradigm of Private Intervention

Best P. Ugala
KEYWORDS: YOUTH ENGAGEMENT FOR PEACE AND SOCIAL STABILITY: THEATRICAL PARADIGM OF PRIVATE INTERVENTION

ABSTRACT:

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 outlawed every form of slavery and slave trade. But slavery is by no means dead as young men and women mostly from Nigeria are shipped abroad, forced to flee their country by unemployment, hardship and governmental neglect to live a life of servitude in foreign lands. The system is so brutish and intolerable that the youths left at home are challenging every form of orthodoxyand order and unleashing anger and violence on their society. Drawing illustration from the militant activities of the youths across the country and the Amnesty Programme of the Federal Government, this paper argues that if the youths are not constructively engaged, they will end up engaging the society destructively. Using the noble effort of an unselfish individual as a paradigm, it underscores the imperative for public and private partnership on youth engagement scheme to stem the tide of insecurity and restore order.
