8.10 Current debates and reforms
The chapter dedicated to Culture and Youth in the National Youth Programme 2014-2017 highlights the lack of research on the relationship, needs and habits of young people in the field of culture, as well as topics related to artistic and cultural education. At the same time, the area of culture and youth is one of the areas that need to be systematically explored so that future strategic documents are based on relevant indicators and arguments derived from research work and recommendations, thereby contributing to ensuring the quality and facilitation of young people's cultural life. It is therefore necessary to implement Measure 6, "Conduct of Research in the Field of Culture and Youth". As stated in the Report on the Implementation of the National Youth Programme for the Period from 2014 to 2017 of the Government of the Republic of Croatia, as part of this measure, no activities have been undertaken to achieve this Measure.
