Support for State parties
States parties cooperating with the Youth Department and the CDEJ under the package of support measures will have access to some specific benefits.
Among others, such benefits include opportunities for staff and representatives of public authorities to acquire:
Interested parties stand to gain competence for the further implementation of their ongoing and future youth policy tasks. CDEJ and Youth Department activities under this package of support measures offer governmental stakeholders the opportunity to be exposed to new and innovative methodologies, approaches and concepts, as they are being developed in the international youth policy community of practice.
The Youth Department and the CDEJ have privileged access to a wide-ranging network of experts all over Europe that possess a variety of different youth policy related knowledge and expertise. Participating in activities under this package of support measures brings specific governmental stakeholders into contact with this network and with experts they would otherwise unlikely be in a position to find by themselves.
Working with the Council of Europe, through the CDEJ, underwrites activities of individual governments with international, institutional recognition and legitimation for their work on youth policy, given the Council of Europe's institutional relationships, its history of standard setting, and the moral authority of its rights-based philosophy of youth work and youth policy.
The Council of Europe’s Youth Department is recognised as standing for quality in youth policy and youth work in the international youth sector and in sectors of wider relevance to youth policy, such as education, lifelong learning, and civil society development. Associating with it and the expertise it can mobilise added value to the youth policy of individual States.
