Forum21 is a European and international information and communication project of IJAB, Germany, INJEP, France, and The NYA, United Kingdom. This collaboration ran from April 2003 to December 2010.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION[17/8/2011]

In accordance with new reform plans for shaping European child and youth related policies and with raising the importance of promoting child and youth policy related dialogue Forum21 is in a process of restructuring and widening the framework of cooperation for setting new future oriented goals for our two worldwide unique Journals.

Especially in times of economic austerity our commitment is also oriented towards reshuffling the financial basis for the production of the Journals. This is why this June 2011 issue is published only in an electronic version to being hosted on the youth website of the Council of Europe.

The purpose of these specialist publications with a distinctive profile of a broad European dimension of child and youth policy is to bring national youth policies closer together and keep the ongoing European and international dialogue about the key problems of national and supranational child and youth policies on a solid, high-level foundation in terms of content, expertise and politics.

The main goal of both journals is to support a closer European and international cooperation in the field of child and youth policy as well as the dialogue between policy makers, researchers and practitioners.

The Journals promote putting the main emphasis of the whole diverse range of specialist fields of child and youth policies and the models put forward in an endeavour to solve individual problem areas to a European and international audience for discussion.

The 2008 newly published Forum21 – European Journal on Child and Youth Research has set itself the task to close the gap by a new approach at the international level: the articles published in the Journal are all summaries of research results, which already have been published and are relevant for policy makers and practitioners. They represent a targeted selection, which is linked to current international and national developments and political planning and thus provides informational support to decision-makers in politics and practice. The papers in the Journal are neither published in view of an academic recognition of their content nor are they intended as subject for an academic discussion.

Both Journals are published on the website www.coe.int/youth/forum21 in an electronic full text version in English, French and German by the Directorate of Youth and Sport of the Council of Europe based on common goals of favouring a European and international dialogue about key issues of child and youth policies. From No 9/June 2007 of the European Journal on Child and Youth Policy as well as from No 1/June 2008 of the European Journal on Child and Youth Research, full texts are available also in Russian.

The structure of the printed version of the Journals – distributed in 187 countries in all regions of the United Nations with contributions in three possible languages – English, French and German – and detailed abstracts in the other two languages ensures wide access to the information concerned.

Nature of the co-operation between the Journal and the Council of Europe 

The support on defining and implementing appropriate youth policies at national, regional and local levels is a priority of the Council of Europe’s youth sector. In pursuing this priority, the Directorate of Youth and Sport of the Council of Europe advises member states on this issue through study visits and a system of international reviews of national youth policies, organises expert meetings and seminars on youth policy development, involving representatives of both governmental and non-governmental youth sectors, and produces publications on the topic. In view of the common goal and interest and in order to create synergy and to make the European Journal on Youth Policy accessible to a large public, the Directorate of Youth and Sport co-operates with the editors of the Journal by publishing it on its website.
