The Light of Islam


The article examines the features of effective interaction between government agencies, NGOs, and other civil institutions on youth issues. State youth policy in Uzbekistan considers revealing the potential of young people and promoting their effective socialization. The article shows the importance of modern education and upbringing, social support of young people in Uzbekistan. The political activity of youth is an indicator of the processes taking place in modern society. The article considers youth policy, the UN international legal documents regulating the youth sphere. The urgency of the youth issue is growing in connection with the deepening of globalization. The solutions to the problems and challenges are impossible without the active participation of young people. Therefore, this issue was always one of the priority tasks of the international community and the UN. Since the middle of the 20th century, the youth issue has been the object of the policy of more than 130 countries in the world. The article examines the policy in the youth sphere of foreign countries and Uzbekistan. And the article notes general aspects and features. In the way the state organizes youth policy, two models stand out – the European and Anglo-Saxon. The European model implies the leading role of the state in the feld of youth policy. The Anglo-Saxon model characterizes an approach to exclusive support volunteer activities and youth organizations. But government agencies have not to take systematic participation in the implementation of youth policy. The article comprehensively surveys the new course of Uzbekistan to increase the role of youth in socio-political life. In this regard, it emphasizes comprehensive support of youth initiatives, both from the state and youth organizations. Open dialogue with youth has become a strategic direction at a new stage of development of Uzbekistan. This strategy gives a key place to increasing the public activity of young people. The process of forming a modern, democratic country involved youth.
