How is youth work done? Who does it? Is it recognised? And if yes, how? How does one become a youth worker? What are the trends and developments in youth work and youth policy? How will the results of the latest European Youth Work Convention impact youth work and how youth work can contribute to the Bonn Process? These are just a few questions we are discussing in this episode, with the geographical focus on Eastern and Southeast Europe. 

In order to talk about the realities of youth work in these two regions we have invited two researchers: Dunja Potočnik and Max Fras. They were both a part of teams researching youth work in Eastern and South East Europe. We are also joined by Tanya Basarab from the EU-Council of Europe youth partnership.
