5. Participation

This chapter provides an overview on youth policy with regard to participation. It describes the participation structures and activities within the representative democracy and also youth-specific participation opportunities. Participation is a main objective of Luxembourgish youth policy, which aims at enabling young people to take part in society and also to have a voice in the process of policy-making. Therefore a large number of participation offers have been created over the last years (e.g. youth parliament, youth council, local youth plans). A major challenge of youth policy in Luxembourg is the low political participation of young people with a migrant background (and/or low socioeconomic status), both within the representative democracy (elections) and concerning other youth-specific participation offers.
