Les Jeunes IHEDN is the first European and generational association on commitment, defence and security issues. It is sponsored by the French Minister of the Armed Forces.

Since 1996, the association has brought together young auditors trained by the Institut des hautes études de défense nationale (IHEDN) and is open to all young people.

As a platform for commitment and a think tank, the association offers a range of ways for young people in France and abroad to get involved in the major issues facing our country in the future. Citizenship, defence, national security, sovereignty and international relations are just some of the issues on which young people can develop concrete, sustainable solutions. That means raising awareness among as many people as possible, and that's where our mission lies: Commitment.
