Youth and Politics in Eastern Europe

Ken Roberts

Deutsche Fassung


Over the past two decades, young people from Eastern and Central Europe have found themselves confronted with a dual challenge: they had to manage their own transition into adulthood and experience the transformation of their societies. Unemployment and precarious working conditions may have led to a diffuse sense of dissatisfaction and sporadic protests among young people. However, a new generation with a political vision is not in sight in Eastern Europe.
