Swedish national youth policy is directed at the approximately 1.4 million Swedish inhabitants who are between the ages of 13–25. The Ministry of Integration and Gender Equality is responsible for the coordination and follow-up of this cross-sectoral youth policy. Two overarching objectives of the policy are: first, that all young people are to have genuine access to influence; and two, all young people are to have genuine access to welfare. A central priority that has been emphasised by the Government in recent budget bills is also to counteract the social exclusion of young people. The follow up of youth policy focuses on how the two main objectives are achieved within each of the following the prioritised areas of activity: Education, Employment, Culture and leisure, Participation, Health and security.
