Critical Young Europeans (CRY_OUT)

TEAM

Donatella della Porta, Chiara Milan, Bogumila Hall, and Martín Portos García

START YEAR 2017

END YEAR 2019

The project aims at mapping collective experiences by young people pursuing a just and sustainable European society in selected European countries (among which Italy, Spain, UK and Poland), in order to explore youth participation and attitude to engage in different political domains.  The research will proceed by snow-balling on information acquired through expert interviews. Semi-structured interviews with young people active in the selected civil society organizations will be used in order to investigate the various collective endeavors through which young people aim at improving justice in our European societies. Focus groups will then be carried out in order to examine the meanings and norms that underlie young Europeans’ political participation.
