Question: What is “Youth Participation”?

December 11, 2006

For a given reason, I may invite all honourable readers to provide us with their perception of “participation”. Resulting from the provocative statement given by Stefan Becsky, Coordinator of the Editorial Board of Forum 21 – Europan Journal on Youth Policy, at the end of today’s afternoon panel, a controversial discussion among the editorial staff of this blog about “What is successful participation?” and “How can one measure success in this respect?” emerged. F.e.: If many young people go to the polls, is this an indicator for a vital youth participation?

Since you are all experts in this field, let us ask YOU to share your knowledge with us. Did we get it correctly, that there is no agreement over this question among the prticipants as well?
