A Key to the Future: The Attitudes and Values of Adolescent Europeans
Ziebertz, Hans-Georg; Kay, William K.
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v7 n2 p151-165 Jun 2009
Based on original empirical data collected from adolescents in Europe (N = 9003) this paper focuses the lifeworlds of young people. It analyses negative and positive patterns of attitude and combines them with further concepts: personal life perspectives, various key values and political attitudes. Technically, the attitude towards Europe acts as the dependent variable whereas the remaining concepts are used as independent variables. The empirical results show Turkish and Polish adolescents are more critical towards Europe than adolescents living in "old" Europe. Furthermore, the data show that those who hold negative expectations about their personal futures are likely also to be Eurosceptical. (Contains 3 tables and 2 notes.)
