The Joint Council on Youth brings the European Steering Committee for Youth (CDEJ) and the Advisory Council on Youth together in a co-decision body which establishes the youth sector’s priorities, objectives and budgets.

This is the supreme decision and policy-making body for the Council of Europe’s governmental and non-governmental partners in the Youth Department.
It is composed of all members of the CDEJ and all members of the Advisory Council.

The task of the Joint Council, in a spirit of co-management, is to develop a common position on:

  • the youth sector’s overall priorities, annual/pluriannual objectives, main budget envelopes and necessary budget specifications, within the political and budgetary framework established by the Committee of Ministers;
  • a mandate for the work of the Programming Committee.
