Youth - actor of social change

Objectif

The Coordination Action on youth as actor of social change searches answers to the following challenges of individualisation which are related to the conditions and obstacles which young people face in rapidly changing European societies and which affect their social integration:
- How do young people's decisions and coping strategies relate to changing social structures?
- What conditions in existing intergenerational relationships are responsible for young people's integration and individualisation as active citizens with regard to social change?
- What policies enable young people to actively influence social change?
These leading questions will be investigated in three thematic areas which represent crucial situations and status of young people in European societies:
1. Young parenthood as the question of gendered individualisation and the challenge of reproduction;
2. Transitions to work and the challenge of socio-economic and socio-cultural integration of ethnic minority youth;
3. Civic participation as the challenge of becoming an active citizen.
The CA represents a high profile network which will work out the three thematic areas in workshops with other European experts on youth, researchers as well as policy makers and practitioners. It aims at integrating existing research, developing a new understanding of the youth question and at coming up with policy relevant recommendations. Each working group assembles researchers from different European countries, representing different youth transition regimes, including those of new EU member states and accession countries. The working groups specify the overall objectives and research questions in parallel as well as in integrated activities which look for interconnections between the topics. A course module 'Youth - actor of social change' for use in higher education will be developed while a European conference under the same title will highlight the findings of the Coordinated Action.
