2017 edition of the European University on Youth Policies

The 2017 edition of the European University on Youth Policies, also known as the Summer University, gathered 40 representatives of ministries responsible for youth issues and of youth organisations from across Europe. It took place at the European Youth Centre Budapest.

The Summer University aimed at improving participants’ understanding of European approaches to youth policy. Participants also exchanged knowledge and views on youth policy issues relevant to debates taking place in Council of Europe’s youth sector. The programme of the Summer University alternated inputs with several good practices sharing and one on-site visit at Corvinus University. This methodology helped participants to understand the practical implications of youth policies.

Over the years, several editions of the European University on Youth Policies have been hosted by individual states. They focused on issues closely linked to European youth policy, such as co-management, youth participation, social inclusion of youth, Roma youth issues, etc.

In accordance with the Council of Europe’s package of youth policy development measures, the main objectives of the Summer University were:
• to familiarise participants with the values, objectives, programmes and structures of the Council of Europe and its Youth Department, including in the context of its co-operation with the European Union;
• to improve participants’ understanding of European approaches to youth policy;
• to familiarise participants with the reality of youth, youth policy and youth work, notably through the visit of youth projects and the exchange of good practices;
• to exchange knowledge and views on youth policy issues relevant to debates taking place in the Council of Europe’s youth sector;
• to facilitate peer advice and networking.
