MAPPING OF YOUTH POLICIES AND IDENTIFICATION OF EXISTING SUPPORT AND GAPS IN FINANCING OF YOUTH ACTIONS IN THE WESTERN BALKANS - COMPARATIVE REPORT
18 Jan 2024 | REPORT
This comparative report on youth policies, funding, participation, and donor programs in the Western Balkans (WB) is based on desk and empirical research conducted between August and November 2023. It includes a mapping of donor programs in the region and utilizes individual economy reports to assess the current state of youth, identify support gaps, and analyze youth involvement in decision-making. Guided by the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC), the report aims to inform the implementation of the Western Balkans Youth Lab, offering insights for public administrations, donors, youth councils, and umbrella organizations. It highlights challenges such as the lack of consistent youth-focused statistical data and variations in age range definitions (15-24; 15-29; 15-30) among institutions in the region.
