Two senior researchers: Jasna Milošević Đorđević from Belgrade University, Pavle Pavlović from Podgorica University, the team members of ALDA and eight Local Democracy Agencies in the Western Balkans collaborated, as project partners in order to compose the results of the project study.

The main topic of the project, youth cultural participation, has emerged as a continuation from the previous activities that were conducted at a local level in LDA host cities, as well and in 40 towns and municipalities across the region. Here, culture is seen as an incentive for youth participation, a space of employment opportunities and a way of spending leisure time creatively. Moreover, culture further active engagement skills and enhance the participation in policymaking.

A very important feature of this publication is that its primary focus is on grass – root level, thus providing an overview of the state of art in youth cultural needs. In addition, another feature of the study entails a comparative insight into the legislative and institutional framework, especially into local practices in a diverse cultural context.

Finally, the publication serves as a useful source of information on present prevailing trends in the transformation of the cultural value system among the young generation in the Balkans.

It would be an oversight not to mention, that the regional team of Youth trainers and Youth engagement workers contributed significantly to the studies. These workers were continuously trained in the project and therefore, their inputs and feedback are seen as a valuable contribution to the deeper understanding of the different aspects of youth cultural participation.
