YOUTH IN THE BALKANS: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Kosovo*, Serbia, FYR Macedonia COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS AND PRACTICE (2018)

The purpose of this study is to provide analysis on the key challenges that young people face, together with related policy and legal responses in the Western Balkans, which were addressed within the research component of the multi-annual project Balkan regional platform for youth participation and dialogue, implemented from 2015-2018 by the European Association for Local Democracy (ALDA), the Local Democracy Agencies: Central and Southern Serbia, Subotica, Kosovo*, Montenegro, Mostar, Prijedor, Zavidovici in Bosnia and Herzegovina and ALDA Skopje.

The Balkan regional platform for youth participation and dialogue aims on increasing awareness on youth participation, youth activism and the possibilities of young people creating and influencing the policies closely related to them. One of the goals of the Platform is to improve cooperation and the coordination between Civil Society (CS) and the public authorities with the active participation of youngsters, through (inter alia) the creation Regional Network for Local Democracy. Easing youth activism and participation and raising the awareness of local authorities, policy and decision makers, Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and youth leaders in targeted countries on EU standards, policies and practices on youth participation is the main scope of every activity within the platform. Open dialogue between youth and stakeholders in their communities but also in Balkan region countries is the main objective and position of youth, which the creation of the platform seeks to achieve.  

This study is conducted in line with the objective of the research project component in 2018, which is to contribute to increasing the focus of governments (at all levels) in the Western Balkans to provide more favourable conditions for enhancing youth participation in policy and decision making.
