- Indicators of the survey
Within the framework of the "Youth for Europe" programme, DG Education and Culture commissioned a "Study on the State of Young People and Youth Policy in Europe" to the IARD Institute (Milan). This study is the outcome of the active collaboration between European research institutes in the 15 member states, Liechtenstein, Norway and Iceland.
The work is divided into three main sections:
the first one is dedicated to the conditions of youth in all 18 European countries;
the second one is about youth policy in the same countries;
the last section deals with "Education and Training of Youth workers in Europe".
The impressive study identifies the main problems and challenges faced by the young generations and focuses on some particular issues such us education and training, labour market, well-being, health and values, organisational and political participation and the "European dimension". It contains general and national reports to each of the three above-mentioned focal points and provides some additional policy reflections and recommendations to help foster initiatives in the Youth field.
The study was presented in Brussels, on June 26th, 2001.
