Youth Research in West and East. Special Report. German Youth Institute Offers Benefit of Its Experience. Sozial-Report.
This social report concerns the efforts of the German Youth Institute in working with other institutes and with other countries to develop youth policies and programs. It begins by describing German and Soviet youth researchers working together to develop a concept for a long-term youth policy based on democratic structures. The German approach to youth services and youth policy is briefly reviewed and policy changes needed to keep pace with the growing individualization of lifestyles are addressed. The German Youth Institute, with its eight departments of Youth Services, Youth and Work, Youth and Politics, Girls and Women Research, Family/Family Policy, Children and Child Care, Media and New Information Technologies, and Social Reporting and Documentation, is described as a mediator between field workers, researchers, and politicians. Lecture activities, publications, and research efforts of the institute are described and international cooperation between the German Youth Institute and a number of other countries in conducting research is discussed. The document concludes by noting that German assistance is being discussed in Latin America for the development of youth services and youth policies in Argentina and Chile and for projects with Costa Rica and Uruguay.
