Participation constituted a key concept in the new democratic era in Spain. ‘Youth’ was viewed as a privileged arena to be nurtured and to assure the future of this new democracy. Different institutions for young people were created depending on the three existing levels of Public Administration (national, regional and local). In this chapter, we intend to examine the situation of youth participation in three main structures: (1) the educational system, (2) juvenile associations and (3) local programs. Anyway we have focused mainly the group of the younger because it has existed an important mobilization in the local administration levels as much as between NGO's, in the sense to improve children's participation in public matters starting from the approval of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
