Through a wide range of discussion formats the Youth Lab provided a forum for gaining new knowledge, discussing ideas, and developing distinct visions of the region’s social and democratic future. Experts and trainers from the South Caucasus and Europe offered insights in various policy areas including tax policy and education. Special attention was also paid to questions about political culture and active citizenship. On the last day, a “future conference” gave participants the opportunity to provide their own criticism on the current situation facing the region.
