PEREGRINO, Mônica; PINHEIRO, Diógenes  and  SOUZA, Luiz Carlos de. Engagement, education and work: demands of the Youth in Brazil. Rev. Cien. Soc. [online]. 2018, vol.31, n.42, pp.127-150. ISSN 0797-5538.

This paper reviews the National Youth Conferences in Brazil in order to discover the demands and perceptions of young militants regarding their rights, especially those related to education and work. The objective is to analyze how the building of an institutional and legal field has worked as a mobilization tool for young people in the general fight for the expansion of their rights. The final conclusion is that the listening process of organized youth is an important contribution to the debate, especially by expanding themes and bring to light new legal subjects that arose in the recent cycle of public policies for youth in the country, which seems to end in 2016 with the rupture that occurred in the Federal Government and the consequent extinction of numerous pro-grams and policies that were ensuring, albeit timidly, the expansion of young Brazilians rights.
