Comparative Overview and Analysis: Policy and Legislative Framework for Youth Participation in the Balkans
Balkan Regional Platform for Youth Participation and Dialogue is the project designed to contribute to structuring regional thematic cooperation and coordination between civil society and public authorities in the Western Balkan countries primarily aimed to improve environment for youth activism and participation.
This publication is the result of extensive field research work carried out by the team of experts, youth workers and the project partner LDA steam members. Field research, focus group meetings, field and online surveys were conducted in some thirty smaller local communities across the region.
Information and feedback collected and comprised in this publication serve as the grounds for furthering advocacy actions of CSOs operating at grass root level to influence more effectively the so much needed legislative and institutional reforms in support to enhanced implementation of youth policies and to furthering the EU integration perspective of the Western Balkans.
