Working Groups

Following the second meeting of the Younger Generation Task Force on Ukraine and European Security, a progenitor organisation of the YGLN, in Riga in April 2015, it was determined that as the group grew in size a division, into four Working Groups would permit more detailed discussion on specific aspects of European Security. These sub-divisions help focus each member’s personal strengths, whilst still permitting general discussion during plenary sessions.

The four Working Groups, focusing on Civil Society, Security, Economics, and Rule of Law, are divided as follows:
