Do young people support and believe in democracy? Do they trust their governments, the EU, or both? Do they think it pays off to get a good education? Are they optimistic about the future? Since 2009, FES has conducted numerous youth studies around the world, investigating how young generations perceive the development of their societies and their personal future in times of national and global transformations. As of 2018, FES youth studies focus on Southern Eastern Europe, Russia, Central Asia, Eastern Central Europe, and the Baltic states. Further studies for the Middle East and Northern Africa are planned. FES youth studies combine qualitative and quantitative research elements and are carried out in close collaboration with regional research teams.
