Improving young people's access to their rights

Improving young people’s access to their rights

Today around 30 youth organisations and representatives of the European Court of Human Rights, the European Social Charter Department and the Ibero-American Convention on Youth Rights Experts’ Commission gathered in Strasbourg (France) to attend the roundtable event: “The promotion of Youth Rights in Europe”.

Throughout the debate, organised by the European Youth Forum, participants analysed the gaps and strengths of the current human rights framework for youth and shared examples of how treaty monitoring bodies and special procedures mandates integrate youth rights into their work.

The discussion also focused on elements in existing legislation, policies and practice at the national level which recognize and protect the rights of youth.
