As a part of BiH chairmanship over the Council of Ministers of the Council of Europe, organised by the Ministry of Civil Affairs of BiH and the Committee for Coordinating Youth Issues in Bosnia and Herzegovina, a seminar “On Youth Policy in South-Eastern Europe – Social Inclusion of Youth” was held.

The purpose of the seminar was to analyse the current state and to overview the options of mending youth policies that will lead to social inclusion of youth at a state and local level. With youth from Bosnia and Herzegovina, the participants of the seminar were youth from over 30 countries, and the seminar “On Youth Policy in South-Eastern Europe – Social Inclusion of Youth” is attended by Mary Ann Hennessey, the Head of Office of the Council of Europe in BiH. 

 “Social inclusion of youth in delicate situations in South-Eastern Europe is an important youth issue in BiH, i.e. the issue of decreasing social exclusion of youth from BiH society, as for the economic situation, so for the various tensions existing in the country” – evaluated the Head of Office of the Council of Europe in BiH Mary Ann Hennessey. She added that she hopes that the issue of social inclusion of youth will become a priority during BiH chairmanship over the Council of Europe. 

Katarina Vučković from the Institute for Youth Development KULT claims that youth in Bosnia and Herzegovina are in an unfavourable position. “Youth fight against many matters in BiH, and the statistics in the Federation of BiH demonstrates that over 60% of youth are unemployed, and every 6th young person wishes to leave the country” – as Katarina Vučković further elaborated. She says that the development of strategic documents for working with youth is very important but that the participation of youth in the process of developing these documents is also important. “The authorities, or the entities, must provide an answer to what to do with youth and their problems, or their striving to leave the country and how to incite them to self-employment. What if 4 out of 5 youth actually does leave the country?” – concluded Katarina Vučković from the Institute for Youth Development KULT.
