  • La integración sociopolítica de los jóvenes en tiempos

    • Authors: Jorge Benedicto
      Abstract: The structural transformations experienced by western societies in last decades and the hegemony of neoliberal policies have modified the patterns of social reproduction which guaranteed the youth social integration in adulthood. The most evident consequence of this new context is the breakdown of intergenerational contract that organized the coexistence and legitimacy of European democracies in the phase of welfare capitalism. The effects of this “unfulfilled promise” of integration, now emphasized by big crisis, are experienced with frustration and uncertainty for many young people, forcing them to seek new ways of integration. This article analyses the characteristics of youth integration in the global capitalism, the meanings young people attribute to it and the strategies that they develop to survive in “unsettled times”.

  • Young people and the new semantics of the future

    • Authors: Carmen Leccardi
      Abstract: Young people in the new century find themselves having to define their existential choices within a social landscape that is strongly characterized by the acceleration of change. Contemporary time seems to erase temporal continuity and the notion of the life-plan as developed in the modern era. The article analyses how this process impacts on the biographical constructs of young people and how the changing experience of time affects the transition to adulthood and the spread of new values. The hypothesis is that the positive relation among life-plan, biographical time, and identity encounters difficulties when the future is shortened. Planning capacity is compromised and life-projects depend more on subjective factors than on completion of the canonical life-stages marked out by institutional times-frames. As a result young peoples “navigate by sight”, dealing with uncertainty, rather than following pre-established routes. The restructuration of the relationship between identity and social time do not consist only in absolutization of the present reflects in a positive redefinition of the relationship with the future. The “new youth” possesses sufficient capacities to be able to govern the dynamics of the high-speed society in which they find themselves living.

  • Youth through social sciences. A kaleidoscopic view

    • Authors: Andrea Pirni
      Abstract: The article’s intention is to stimulate the identification, among the scientific literature that covers youth, of coordinates of synthesis. Different trans-disciplinary paths of research, that are partially overlapping in scientific reflection, are synoptically presented to offer some elements for the elaboration of a perspective that sees in youth not only a field of research, but a starting point to contribute to the study of social change.

  • Youth and the United Europe

    • Authors: Daniela Preda
      Abstract: The Second World War marked a turning point in European history, leading to a shift from the European to the world system of states and decreeing the historical failure of the absolute national state. The idea of European unification, which in the interwar period still appeared as unrealistic, became concretely achievable in the immediate postwar period, beginning to take shape with the theoretical reflections of many Europeans, who organized associations to promote the idea of a united Europe. The article intends to analyze the history of the birth and of the ideas of the first Europeanist youth organizations in this postwar context.

  • La jeunesse française : paradoxes et polarisations

    • Authors: Vincenzo Cicchelli, Valérie Germain
      Abstract: This paper aims at portraying an overall picture of young people’s condition in France. In an attempt to provide an overview of the social changes that are occurring in their lives, it endeavours to highlight the main features of contemporary youth. First, this paper draws on the perspective of the regimes of youth transitions in Europe (Walther 2006), in order to illustrate the specificity of the French case. It then takes a distinctive position in the analysis of the recent important shifts by exploring the paradoxes that shape the lived experiences of young French people, especially the dialectic between their autonomy and dependency. Finally, the increasing divergence of the paths to adulthood between educated and uneducated young people is explored, using the two relevant examples of the transition from school to work and the process of leaving parental home.

  • Crisis política y juventud en España: el declive del
           bipartidismo electoral

    • Authors: Francisco José Francés García, Oscar Antonio Santacreu Fernández
      Abstract: This paper shows the increasing trend of Spanish young people towards non-conventional mechanisms of political expression, in a crisis context which has reduced its reliance on traditional political actors. As an alternative to bipartisanship, political participation moves towards increased interest and attention to new players, such as emergent political parties. Using a covariance structural model, factors such as political activism, awareness and understanding of country problems, and trust in the political system, are explored in order to explain an electoral behavior that is undergoing deep changes.

  • I giovani e i valori nella sociologia di Antonio de Lillo

    • Authors: Gianfranco Bettin Lattes
      Abstract: The article focuses on Antonio de Lillo’s contribution to the sociology of new generations. His studies are considered by showing their originality and methodological rigour as the result of his masterful experience. The topic of young people’s values – which is de Lillo’s main research field – is presented through his theoretical synthesis and the results of the research work conducted from 1974 to 2012. Particular attention is devoted to the analysis of “socialità ristretta” by young people, which is one of the most scientifically rich stimulus for the sociology of new generations.

  • Keeping it in the family: the absence of young Italians from the public

    • Authors: Pierluca Birindelli
      Abstract: The author analysed autobiographies written by university students, comparing his impressions with the results of studies on young people carried out by Italian sociologists. The picture that he pieced together of this generation “without fathers or teachers”, and of the related responsibilities of the previous generation, is far from encouraging. The modern generation of young Italians nurtures values pivoting on the family and on self-fulfilment, and acts within spheres of friendship and sentiment at short radius. The rest of the social world is mediated, experienced through films, internet and holidays. The universalist attitude has been supplanted by a widespread and rooted particularism. The collective dimension that transcends the experience of the individual and his reference group has lost relevance.

  • Searching for adulthood: young people, citizenship and participation

    • Authors: Alessandro Martelli, Ilaria Pitti
      Abstract: Focusing on the relation between youth and citizenship and between youth and adulthood, the article investigates youth paths of civic and political engagement by presenting the results of a qualitative research conducted in Bologna in 2012 which has involved a sample of young people and a sample of “significant adults” through semi-structured interviews. The intergenerational analysis shows that youth civic and political engagement, still influenced by social and economic factors, can be interpreted as a multiform expression of agency towards an environment perceived as not welcoming for the younger generations.

  • Transition to adulthood and turnout. Some unexpected implications from the
           Italian case

    • Authors: Dario Tuorto
      Abstract: Our article aims to study the evolution of turnout in Italy during the transition to adulthood. Previous studies in other countries (Bhatti and Hansen 2012) have attested an unexpected phase after the first vote, when turnout declines instead of following a progressive increase. We hypothesize that this trend also exists in Italy and is influenced by the characteristics of the living arrangement. The decision to leave or postpone the timing of exit from the parental home seems to play a crucial rule in the explanation of young adults’ lower turnout. We also expect an interactive effect of variables such as the age-class of the young, their sex and occupational status. Data used for the analysis comes from two different sources (Osservatorio Prospex-Cattaneo, Itanes) and allows us to compare the level of turnout of young people in different living arrangements.

  • Relational dynamics and youth participation in Italy

    • Authors: Simona Gozzo
      Abstract: This study analyzes changes in political participation among Italian youth. The main hypothesis is that relations are key in understanding and explaining the propensity towards social involvement and political participation. We used both official data and data collected through a survey representing almost all the Italian regions. An interesting aspect of this analysis is that it explains how youth participation can increase despite the mistrust in the institutions.

  • Youth Policies in Europe: big changes after the big crisis? An
           explorative analysis

    • Authors: Riccardo Guidi
      Abstract: The paper deals with current innovation trajectories in European youth policies. It is aimed at exploring European Union policy addresses on youth condition and the youth policies of four EU Member Countries (Germany, Denmark, United Kingdom, Italy) belonging to different welfare and youth transition regimes. Although the analysis is explorative and the results must be considered preliminary only, a minimalist and workfare-based policy approach seems to characterize European youth policies in times of crisis. This confirms that social changes are not enough per sé to generate policy interventionism. The European relative political inertia against the hard effects of post-2008 crisis risks to further strengthen inequalities among social groups, age groups and countries.

  • Identity-related: young people, strategies of identity and social networks

    • Authors: Chiara Moroni
      Abstract: The social networks are activators of exponential relations and of new formulas of self-representation. For this the social networks may be considered real laboratories in which to experience different possibilities of construction and reconstruction of Self. This construction process is very common among young people, called “digital natives”; they use the social networks to define themselves and their social relationship. Today we have more and more identity-related.

  • Fundamentalists toward democracy? Empirical analysis of fundamentalist
           attitudes and democratic attitudes in the Middle East

    • Authors: Kazem Hajizadeh
      Abstract: Huntington asks an important question in The Third Wave: if traditional Islamic values and beliefs have significantly retarded democratic progress in the past, to what extent are they likely to continue to do so in the future? Unlike Huntington’s work, this paper is primarily a micro-level analysis. It seeks to show how Muslim people interpret and evaluate Islam and democracy. So we want to attach more data to Huntington’s theory and wish to demonstrate that non-democratic political space and authoritarian governments in Muslim countries can’t be explained by the features of Islam; there are considerable reasons and facts to convince scholars to look for other factors. The results illustrate nearly all Muslims tend to Islam and democracy at the same time. It seems Large populations of moderate fundamentalists in Muslim countries are appearing who struggle to actualize Islamic teachings in a democratic political model.
