Political participation of young people in Europe - development of indicators for comparative research in the EU

Objective

The European Commission White Paper on Youth Policy 2001 emphasizes the importance of involving young people in the process of a new European governance. Reliable tools for measuring political involvement of young people are needed, to achieve detailed information referring national and regional differences. These instruments are still missing. The development and evaluation of international comparable indicators and benchmarks for the political participation of young people throughout Europe is the main aspect of this project and should therefore contribute to a better understanding of Youth in international field surveys. It will contribute to the integration of young people in the process of participation inside the European Union and also in their involvement in the process of the Enlargement as an important event in the first decade of the twenty- first century (5th FP, chapter 4, 3.2; theme 3).
