The study adopted a qualitative research design. It drew data from the following three main sources: (i) A document review that entailed an in-depth review of policy and operational documents of government and other national institutions tasked with enhancing youth employment and overall youth development and empowerment in Botswana; (ii) focus group discussions with unemployed and employed young people in the country.(iii) Key informant interviews with public sector stakeholders working in the broad areas of youth employment and development were also conducted.  

Content analysis was used to analyse the documents reviewed while the interpretitive phenomenological analysis was used for the focus group discussions. 

The file uploaded contains the main themes of the study in terms of what the focus group discussions were based on as well as a table with the profile of these young people.
