Custodial History

The documents contained in the CENYC fonds have been desposited at the HAEU under the terms of a deposit contract signed on 28 February 2001 between, on the one hand, the 'Forum européen de la Jeunesse' and the 'Forum Jeunesse de l'Union européenne', represented by their Secretary-General Mr Tobias Flessenkemper, and, on the other hand, the HAEU, represented by their Director Jean-Marie Palayret.

Content and Structure


The fonds consists of rather complete series of documents which give an insight into the educational and political activities of the CENYC since its creation in 1963. The documents allow to reconstruct the organised youth activities which were not only orientated towards existing political structures which mirrored the actual state of events, but which were able to look ahead and to bring up new ideas to the political and social establishment.
Of particular interest is the fairly rich material about the contacts with the quickly establishing youth organisations and councils in Eastern part of Europe after 1989.
Ruth Ingeborg Meyer-Belardini, May 2003.

System of Arrangement

Since the material was in a disorganised state on its arrival at the archives it has been subject of a complete rearrangement. Thematical and chronological series have been created taking into consideration the organisational structure of the CENYC and the activities that it carried out.
