English version of book

What are young Europeans’ views of their future? What issues concern them, and what are they optimistic about? Where do they find out information and ideas about issues and events?  What role do they think they will play in shaping their own futures?

This groundbreaking study compares the hopes and fears of young people (between 11 and 17) in four very different European countries, and identifies much common ground between them.  The study was supported by the European Science Foundation ECRP programme, the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the Spanish Inter-ministerial  Committee on Science and Technology (CICYT), the Turkish Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TŰBITAK) and the British Academy.


It addresses a very topical and important set of issues concerning young people and their future as citizens of their nations, of Europe and of the world.  The structure of the book is sound, being based around three major themes – the hopes and fears of the young people; the question of optimism about social issues; the young people’s activities. Overall, this is an extremely valuable collection.  It will, I am sure, be well received and have considerable influence on researchers, students and indeed European policy makers.

One can hardly overestimate the cognitive value of this book. In my opinion, the book is important, useful for theorists and practitioners as it constitutes a reliable and up-to-date source of knowledge about adolescents in four European countries. 


Professor Anna Kwiatkowska, University of Management and Law in Warsaw (from review)
