Last update: 22 March 2024

Forthcoming policy developments

Currently a draft Law of Strategic Planning Act is in process of consideration by the Parliament. Some of the provisions of this draft law are relevant to the Youth Act, which must be amended to reflect them. These mainly refer to the adoption procedure of the National Youth Strategy and the youth report, which will be adopted by the Council of Ministers and not by the National Assembly. Furthermore, the national youth programmes will be adopted by the Minister of Youth and Sports and not by the Council of Ministers. 

Another amendment that is pending in terms of the Youth Act is the inclusion of provision defining the term “youth work” designed by the National Working Group on Youth Work. See more details about the National Working Group on Youth Work in section 10.3 Support to youth work
