- Financed by: Zaklada Friedrich Ebert, Zagreb
- Coordinator: Institute for Social Research in Zagreb
- Duration: November 2017 – September 2018
The project is part of the large scale comparative survey of youth in ten European countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Macedonia, Romania, Slovenia and Serbia. Starting with contemporary theories about youth the study aims to detect and analyze attitudes and behaviors of youth in different spheres of life such as: leisure and free time, values, family, mobility, education, employment, politics and national and European identity. The research in Croatia will include the representative sample of 1500 young people aged 14 to 29. The research study aims to deliver comparative analysis by detecting continuity and change since the first FES and ISRZ youth study in Croatia (2012) until 2018; and by comparing the latest Croatian data with the data of other participating countries. Recommendations and proposals for quality national and European public policy for youth will be formulated based on scientific and research findings about social status, behavioral patterns, attitudes and values of young people.
