The Regional Policy Report "Western Balkans Through Youth Lens" seeks to bring greater understanding of the perspective of youngsters themselves on their daily concerns. It identifies key challenges and opportunities in each of the three top pressing topics, but also it brings concrete recommendations on how to achieve higher impact of the existing policies in the Western Balkans. The report demonstrates that governments in the region must prioritize social and economic policies that are inclusive of youth, invest in their education and professional capabilities, and encourage a meaningful participation of youth in the policy - making.
