Die Potenziale der politischen Bildung werden generell nicht ausgeschöpft.
Der vorliegende Band regt anhand von vier Fragen eine konzeptionelle Weiterentwicklung internationaler Jugendbegegnungen an:
1. Worin liegt der politische Gehalt internationaler Jugendbegegnungen?
2. Wie kann das politische Profil von Jugendbegegnungen gestärkt werden?
3. Welche Angebote gibt es, die diesen Ansprüchen gerecht werden?
4. Müssen spezifische Angebote mit einem entsprechende Profil entwickelt werden?
