EACEA National Policies Platform


1. Youth Policy Governance

Last update: 4 January 2021

Youth policy in Malta is primarily administered at a central level. In 2015 the Government issued the document 'National Youth Policy Towards 2020: A shared vision for the future of young people'. Youth policy falls under the main responsibility of the Ministry for Inclusion and Quality of Life. However its transversal nature requires cross-sectoral support from other relevant Ministries.

Youth Policy in Malta looks at the young person as a resource and as such it strives to both support and encourage young people in fulfilling their potential and aspirations while addressing their needs and concerns. The National Youth Policy also supports young people as active and responsible citizens who fully participate in and contribute to the social, economic and cultural life of Malta, Europe and beyond.
