A forum for fostering knowledge on young people’s experiences in today’s Europe
Perspectives on youth

“Perspectives on youth” has been a series on youth policy, research and practice supported by the EU-CoE youth partnership, moving forward debates on youth and having a European/ international relevance. The series includes research articles, well-founded essays, or opinion pieces. It has aimed to function as a reflection and dialogue forum on European developments in the field of youth policy, youth research and youth work.

Conceptually, “Perspectives on youth” has a critical and anticipative approach, reflecting European youth policies and their relevance for and impact on young people, also seeking for trends in the youth field that need innovative and forward-looking answers and strategies.
