Youth policy cooperation

TunisiaIn 2005 the EU-CoE youth partnership, together with several national and regional partners, initiated a process of youth policy cooperation in the broader Euro-Mediterranean region, with a view to fostering greater cooperation between youth policy stakeholders.

The process started in Alexandria in 2005, with a seminar on “Youth Policy - Here and Now!”, jointly organised with the Swedish Institute in Alexandria and the Swedish Board of Youth Affairs. It was taken further in Cairo in 2006, with an international round table on “Youth policy and research development in the Euro-Mediterranean co-operation framework”, organised at the invitation of the League of Arab States, the Swedish Institute in Alexandria and the EU-CoE youth partnership. 

The process of youth policy co-operation has inter alia significantly contributed to the recognition that co-operation among institutions responsible for youth policy (public and private) is essential to intercultural dialogue and to the Euro-Med projects in which young people take part.

Youth policy activities have also, undoubtedly, resulted in an expansion of of partnerships and co-operation with a variety of institutions concerned by Euro-Mediterranean and Euro-Arab co-operation, including the League of Arab States. In this respect, too, the EU-CoE youth partnership is playing a leading and innovative role.
