Summary
The fonds consists of a virtually complete series of documents that give an insight into the educational and political activities of the CENYC since its creation in 1963. It is possible to reconstruct the organised youth activities which were not only orientated towards existing political structures which mirrored the actual state of events, but were able to look ahead and give new ideas to the political and social establishment. Of particular interest is the material concerning contacts with the various youth organisations and councils which sprang up in Eastern Europe after 1989
Biographical or historical data
The Council of European National Youth Committees was founded as a voluntary association of eleven National Committees of the World Assembly of Youth (WAY) (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Turkey and the United Kingdom) and the two National Youth Councils of France and Luxembourg. Italy and Switzerland participated at the founding meeting, but only decided at a later stage to participate in the CENYC. Membership of the CENYC is open to representative National Youth Committees in Europe which are democratic according to the sense of the European Convention of Human Rights. The principal tasks of CENYC are to serve as a forum for the exchange of information, to collect and study material concerning youth problems, to co-operate and obtain assistance from organisations and institutions active in the field of youth work and education and to support national youth committees in activities promoting European unification. Every year several conferences and seminars are held aimed at tackling specific policy issues and to train youth leaders in international youth work. CENYC also has a role as a link with other regions such as Africa, Asia and Latin-America. It plays an important role in developing East-West and Pan-European youth co-operation and it acts as a representative body on behalf of its members to the European institutions, governmental and non-governmental, and to other international bodies. Since the creation of the Council of Europe's European Youth Center and the European Youth Foundation, CENYC has become a member of their Advisory Boards. It collaborates closely with the 'European Co-ordination Bureau of International Youth Organisations' (ECB). In 1996 the CENYC merged with the 'Youth Forum of the European Communities' (YFEU) and the 'European Co-ordination Bureau of International Youth Organisations' (ECB) forming the 'European Youth Forum' which held its first Extraordinary General Assembly in July in Cork (Ireland)
