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.

From the Rainy Place to the Burnt Palace: How Social Movements Form their Political Strategies. The Case of the Six Federations of the Tropic of Cochabamba

Leonidas Oikonomakis
Exploring the case of the cocaleros of the Chapare, this article argues that more emphasis should be placed on mechanisms that are internal to the movements, such as: (a) the resonance of other political experiences at home and abroad, (b) internal struggles for ideological hegemony, and (c) the political formation of their grassroots.
