History

The International Union of Socialist Youth Organisations was founded in 1907 in Stuttgart. Its first president was Karl Liebknecht.

After the First World War the split in the workers' movement was also a split of the youth organisations. In 1919 the International Union of Socialist Youth Organizations was reconstructed as the Communist Youth International in Berlin. Two other organisations were founded in 1921, the International Community of Socialist Youth Organisations and the Working Youth International, merged as Socialist Youth International in 1923 in Hamburg.

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