History

In 1907, the International Union of Socialist Youth Organisations had been founded in Stuttgart. Its first president was Karl Liebknecht.


After the First World War the split of the worker's movement was also a split of the youth organisations. In 1919 the International of the Communist Youth was founded in Berlin. Two organisations founded in 1921, the International Working Group of Socialist Youth Organisation and the social democratic International of the Working Youth, merged as International of the Socialist Youth in 1923 in Hamburg.


After the Second World War, IUSY was founded on 30 September 1946 in Paris.
