The Institute for Justice and Coalition's latest findings show young South Africans have lost faith in politicians, with 50 percent of them believing that government has turned a deaf ear to their issues.

The latest South African Reconciliation Barometer involved more than 3,000 young people, between the ages of 15 and 35, who were asked about their views on matters including government, voting and law enforcement.

IJR’s researcher Kate Leffko Everette says young people are very optimistic about their economic prospects, and that is despite the economic situation in the country.

It is quite a difficult situation that they find themselves in, because young people are struggling to get an education or get into employment; but they are non the less optimistic.
