Youth digital participation: Measuring social impact
Year of production: 2020
This article examines current scholarly debates around digital participatory youth projects and approaches to their evaluation.
The analysis of the literature presented in the paper reveals (1) an over-reliance on traditional evaluation techniques for such initiatives, and (2) a scarcity of models for the assessment of the social impact of digital participatory youth projects.
It is concluded that the challenges and limitations of social impact evaluation practice in digital participatory youth projects should be addressed through the adoption of alternative, participant-centred approaches.
