Youth work in Eastern Europe: Realities, perspectives and inspiring initiatives

This publication explores the reality of youth work in the six countries, which make part of EU’s Eastern Partnership initiative, namely Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.

The work is based on the following sources:

► analysis of existing documents, including the European Knowledge Centre for Youth Policy country sheets on youth work and youth policy, studies on education and career pathways for youth workers and European Union (EU) Youth Wiki contributions;

► inputs provided at the Tbilisi peer-learning event held in November 2019, including interviews and written contributions;

► interviews with youth policy makers, youth workers, researchers and other relevant experts from the countries reviewed;

► a good-practice survey, with inspiring initiatives from the participants in the peer-learning event illustrating ways to improve the quality of youth work in eastern Europe.
