Young Worlds? Political and Social Views of Young People in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus

Just published with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung

Young people’s social outlook and political involvement in and beyond post-Soviet countries are diverse and sometimes contradictory. Some enjoy the opportunities of a globalised and borderless world, while others stay put, nostalgic for a past they have never experienced. Young faces are emblematic of the protest movements we witness in countries such as Ukraine, Russia and Belarus. At the same time young people are mobilised in official movements aimed at regime stabilisation. This report sets out to assess our knowledge of young people’s political and social attitudes by drawing on data obtained by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) from young people in Ukraine from July to August 2017 and in Russia from May to June 2019 as well as on several surveys undertaken by the Centre for East European and International Studies (ZOiS) and other institutions.
