Promoting young people's access to social rights as a means for their
inclusion and participation in society! In and around many cities, social and
economic imbalances have led to the development of disadvantaged
neighbourhoods, where diversity is also accompanied by poverty and often
marginalisation or exclusion. This is sometimes combined with different forms
and levels of de facto social segregation, discrimination and violence. At
times of economic and social crisis, feelings of powerlessness and anxiety
about the future risk deepening local tensions and underlying conflicts. Young
people are often at the centre of these tensions because they are more
vulnerable and insecure, and because they are more directly affected by
uncertainties regarding the development of their autonomy, as well as
participation in society and contribution to its development. The Council of
Europe has challenged itself to respond to these situations by adopting
recommendations for its member states that encourage and support them in
finding adequate policy responses to situations of exclusion, discrimination
and violence affecting young people in disadvantaged neighbourhoods. In early
2015, the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe adopted a policy
recommendation with proposals for policy measures to member states in order to
promote access to social rights for young people. Proposals concern: – the
provision of accessible, affordable public services; – overcoming segregation;
– promoting the participation of young people; – combating discrimination; –
recognition of youth work and non-formal education; – promoting gender-
sensitive approaches to the elaboration of youth policies. This publication is
an accompaniment to this recommendation, and aims to bring its content closer
to policy makers, youth work practitioners, youth organisations and youth
workers, and provide step-by-step information and guidance on the
implementation of the recommendation. The publication also offers advice and
examples of actions to take and policies to develop so that the social rights
of young people are taken seriously by all the actors concerned by social
inclusion and social cohesion.
