This section describes the main mechanisms for ensuring a cross-sectoral approach to youth policy.

Danish youth policy is cross-sectoral, which emphasises coordination between ministries and agencies. There is no legal framework or formalised inter-ministerial working group underpinning the cross-sectoral practice. However, the committees described in section 1.4 coordinate the government’s major and significant policy initiatives, which could also be youth policies.
