The first research of the Connect project was completed by 9 partners in 8 partner countries. The research focused on 3 different topics: Youth Policies, Youth and Youth Participation in Countries. Within the scope of Youth Policies, the partners studied the differences between mechanisms and policies in their countries, defined what is meant by youth policies and explained the youth policies in their countries.
In the second part of the research, which focused on Youth, the definitions of youth in countries and what should be understood from youth were investigated by looking at key figures such as employment, education, demographics and health, and statistics within the country.In addition, the impact of the Covid epidemic on young people in the research partner countries was also examined.
Finally, in the section focusing on Youth Participation, how Youth Participation is defined in countries, observations about it and participation degrees were analyzed with data and statistics related to the situation of the countries.
