Partner countries

Strong partnerships worldwide

IJAB maintains long-standing, reliable and equitable relations with a large number of partners around the globe. International youth policy cooperation makes a vital contribution towards shaping policy together, exchanging information with other countries, and learning from each other. A major prerequisite for this is the existence of stable partnerships with the countries in question. Working on behalf of the Federal Youth Ministry, IJAB has implemented the youth policy agreements between the Federal Republic of Germany and its partner countries since its foundation in 1967. In the context of Germany’s bi- and multilateral youth policy relations, IJAB implements exchanges and programmes for child and youth services experts as well as for policymakers in this area. IJAB is also a member of various international networks in the youth field.
