Mechanisms and actors

In the Republic of Croatia, cross-sectoral policymaking for youth relies on coordination. The competent authority responsible for youth initiates and coordinates the development of youth policy strategy. This authority  establishes various working groups, depending on the priority area, to draft a comprehensive youth strategy. In practice, representatives from the ministry responsible for the priority area collaborate with youth and for-youth organisations operating in the respective field, as well as with representatives of relevant scientific institutions, to define goals, measures, and activities.

After formulating the youth strategy proposal, consultations with the interested public are conducted through e-Counselling, allowing interested citizens, civil society organisations, and others to participate. The competent authority responsible for youth then refines the proposal and forwards it to all proposed designated competent authorities for further review and approval.  Once all approvals are obtained, the strategy proposal is submitted to the Youth Council of the Republic of Croatia and subsequently to the Government of the Republic of Croatia for adoption.
