Cooperation with European countries

There is no formal policy cooperation in the youth field with other EU and EU-candidate countries.

There is however cooperation between the Nordic countries on youth issues within the Nordic Council of Ministers. The Council runs the Nordic Committee for Children and Young People (NORDBUK) which is the Council of Ministers‘ Advisory and Co-ordinating body for youth-related matters. 

The Nordic Youth Council is another example of such a cooperation. The council is a forum for the political youth organizations in the Nordic countries. 

International cooperation

There exists no formal international cooperation on youth policy.
