Appointment of five governmental members of the Board of Co-ordination

 

 

Reference documents
Committee of Ministers' Resolution (91)20


————————————————

Action
The Deputies, in their composition restricted to the member States Parties to the Partial Agreement on the Youth Card[1], are invited to appoint among themselves five member States which will designate their representatives to the Board of Co-ordination for a period of two years (2001-2002).

 

————————————————


The Partial Agreement on the Youth Card was instituted by Resolution (91)20. It is aimed at developing the Youth Card scheme with a view to facilitating young people's mobility, particularly at European level, as well as their access to the various goods and services necessary for their personal and cultural development.

 

Paragraph 2 of Appendix I to Resolution (91)20 states that the organs of the Partial Agreement are:

 

-          the Committee of Ministers with its membership restricted to member States of the Council of Europe who are members of the Partial Agreement;

 

-          the Board of Co-ordination.

 

The Board of Co-ordination is responsible, in particular, for monitoring the implementation of the Youth Card scheme in all the States concerned, awareness-raising, drawing up the budget and the programme of the Partial Agreement and managing and implementing them as adopted by the Committee of Ministers.

 

Paragraph 5 of Appendix I to Resolution (91)20 stipulates that the Board of Co-ordination shall be composed of seventeen members:

 

-                     eight members of the European Conference of Youth Cards appointed by the latter;

 

-          one representative appointed by the Advisory Council to the European Youth Centre and the European Youth Foundation;

 

-          eight representatives of member States Parties to the Partial Agreement (i.e. they have national Youth Card bodies) appointed by the Committee of Ministers for a renewable two-year period.  The initial appointments being made, three members shall be appointed for only a one-year period; such members shall be drawn by lot. Consequently, every year membership is renewable: one year three members are renewed, the following year five members are renewed. In 2000 three member States were appointed who designated their representatives to the Board for two years: Croatia, Cyprus and Hungary (701st meeting, 6 March 2000).  This year 5 member States are to be nominated.  The outgoing countries are: Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands and Portugal.

 

Consequently, the Ministers' Deputies, in their composition limited to fourteen member States Parties to the Partial Agreement on the Youth Card are now invited to designate the five countries out of eleven member States available (Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Portugal, San Marino, Spain, Switzerland), the representatives of which will sit on the Board of Co-ordination in 2001-2002.

 

It should also be recalled that the same paragraph of Appendix I to Resolution (91)20 states that, when appointing members of the Board of Co-ordination, the Committee of Ministers should make a point of ensuring equitable geographical distribution and representation of the youth card.

 

It should be noted that, following contacts made by the Secretariat, the Delegations of Finland, Italy, Malta, Portugal and San Marino have expressed their state's wish to have a representative on the Board of Co-ordination.
