#YouthRights

In Europe and the world today, young people are still facing challenges and barriers to accessing their rights.

As young people are moving between two stages of life – childhood and adulthood – they can be particularly vulnerable to discrimination in various forms. They often encounter difficulties in accessing education, quality employment, social protection and full access to civil and political rights, limiting their potential. Although existing human rights frameworks are universal, there still remains a need for specific protection to tackle discrimination against young people and to ensure their rights are fully recognised and protected.
