Conferences and summits: InfoPoint conference: DG NEAR evaluation of EU support to youth in the enlargement and neighbourhood regions (2014-2022)
The aim of the seminar is to present the final report of the evaluation of EU support to youth in enlargement and neighbourhood regions with its main findings, conclusions and recommendations. The evaluation served a dual purpose of accountability and learning. The main objectives were to: i) provide an independent and evidence-based assessment of the European Union's (EU) past and current external action support to youth and, based on this assessment, ii) provide lessons learnt and recommendations for decision-makers at EU level. The specific objectives of the evaluation were: to assess in qualitative and quantitative terms the relevance, implementation conditions and performance of EU external action support to youth, particularly its efficiency, effectiveness, coherence, sustainability and impactto assess the EU's cooperation potential and added valueto identify lessons learnt (both positive and negative), best practices and recommendations regarding explanatory factors that hamper the contributions of EU support to youth, policy development, policy dialogue and related coherence, as well as on operational aspects in the field of youthThe evaluation explored the benefits of youth-centred approaches, emphasising meaningful engagement in design, implementation, and evaluation. It focussed on how the EU fostered youth agency across diverse groups and included young people from marginalised or discriminated backgrounds. Aligned with Council conclusions, the evaluation adopted integrated approaches to youth issues, addressing crucial nexus issues like employment and education, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), and participation in policy-making and democracy. It examined cross-fertilisation between EU efforts towards youth within Europe and in external action.SpeakersMathieu Bousquet, Director NEAR A Cristina Mereuta, Senior Human Capital Development Expert - European Training Foundation Behrooz Motamed-Afshari, Team Leader - EU4Youth, Senior Youth Expert, Ernst & Young Josep Ferre, Executive Director, Anna Lindh FoundationOgnjen Markovic Team Leader - Western Balkan Youth Lab 2, Regional Cooperation CouncilLanguage: EnglishQ&A session languages: English RegistrationRegister for onsite participation at the InfoPoint premisesRegister for online participation to the Webex meeting (Webex link will be communicated upon registration)Read the privacy statement.
