In the past years youth unemployment has been at the forefront of the challenges the EU Member States are facing. Policy put in place by EU and State level authorities have proven insufficient in tackling said problem, with inadequate training programmes, gender related issues, and demographic challenges. Very often the “one size fits all” approach taken by governments when creating solutions for youth unemployment isn’t only unsuccessful, but also deepens economic discrepancies between regions. In the process of devising new strategies for tackling this issue, the ECON Commission should put emphasis on regional particularities and capacities as well as finding wider multiregional approach, since interregional economic cooperation provides for specific, and thus more effective solutions.
We should also celebrate
Social cohesion is a bond that holds a group together, even if individuals within the group have different backgrounds or circumstances. This bond can be seen through members’ common values and behaviours. It is this cohesion that shapes the European Union today. Diverse cultures, languages, nations, and religions are the pillars upon which the EU rests and should develop further. Problems regarding multiculturalism, however, make social cohesion a major unfinished project for the supranational organisation. While increasing political dissent undermines the functioning of the EU, it also deepens hostilities on a regional level and as such threatens social cohesion. As a consequence, multiculturalism is regularly seen as the culprit of such negative developments. The COTER Commission will, therefore, discuss the role of cultural, regional and lingual diversity in upholding social cohesion when facing common challenges as a diversified community.
