Legal regulation


Legal regulation builds the basis for all activities regarding youth protection. Therefore the YPRT has compiled an inventory of legal regulation with regard to youths in the European countries and also on European level.

The inventory is work in progress. It will be updated continuously and completed step by step. Any legal regulation not listed below might be reported to kunze@yprt.eu. We highly welcome your input.
