Youth Policies in the European Union. Structures and Training. Studies No. 7.
Lazos, C. G.
This volume contains three studies that address important and complementary aspects of youth work as it is developing in the Member States of the European Union. Chapter 1, Youth Structures and Policies at National Level, has two parts. The first describes the specific nature of youth policies carried out by the various governments and the underlying concepts and the terminology used. The second part is an overview of the type and direction of youth policies in the Member States, stressing some aspects of convergence and divergence. Chapter 2, Youth Structures and Policies at Regional and Local Level, analyzes the regional and local dimension of youth policies. Part 1 describes regional and local structures and the corresponding youth policies implemented by the Member States. It pinpoints the particular features of each Member State and highlights common features, convergences, and areas suitable for the development of cooperation at European level. Part 2 highlights the objectives of youth policies and the social problems they attempt to resolve. Chapter 3, Youth Worker Training, is divided into two parts. The first consists of tables and brief commentaries that present the training systems for youth workers set up by the different Member States. The second describes those aspects in common and identifies converging trends that are determining the current situation in youth work. (YLB)
