Youth Participation In Democratic Life from the Author: Bart Cammaerts. This book analyses and assesses the contexts, nature and the diversity of young people's participation in European democratic life. The authors provide an interdisciplinary conceptual framework addressing participation, power, democracy, efficacy and media. Using dynamic, original data collected in surveys, focus groups, interviews and a field experiment, Youth Participation in Democratic Life address young people's attitudes towards voting, participation and representation in policy processes and politicians. Democracy is, however, much more than voting, so volunteering and contentious politics are also elaborated upon. Examining the role of traditional and new media in facilitating youth participation in democratic life, as well as the complex dynamics of youth exclusion from economic, educational and social spheres, the book reveals that most young people are far from apathetic about democracy but rather they are critical of current representative democratic systems and the political elites who appear to run these.

European Youth from the Author: . The primary objective of the Flash Eurobarometer survey "European Youth" (No. 408) is to study young EU citizens' participation in society, with special reference to involvement in voluntary activities and participation in political elections and cultural activities. Only respondents aged 15 to 30 were included in this survey. This issue is of particular interest for the European Union, as its Treaties stipulate that it shall encourage the participation of young people in democratic life in Europe. The EU Youth Strategy also underlines the need to support young people's active participation in society be it through education, employment, volunteering, democratic participation, etc. The survey examines the following issues: - Young people's involvement in a range of groups and clubs such as sports clubs, youth organisations and cultural organisations;- Participation in political elections at the local, regional, national and EU level; - Participation in cultural activities; - Involvement in organised voluntary activities, the nature of these activities and how young people have been recognised or recompensed for their participation; - Involvement in international volunteering and international youth projects; - Young people's confidence about finding employment and their main concerns. Where possible, the findings are compared with those from previous Flash Eurobarometer surveys: "Youth on the Move" (No. 319a) conducted in February 2011, and "European Youth: Participation in Democratic Life" (No. 375), conducted in April 2013. Please note: voting is compulsory for at least some elections in Belgium, Cyprus, Luxembourg and Greece. The voting age is 18 for most of the elections in the EU Member States, with the exception of Austria where the general voting age is 16.

Inspired by the conviction that urban youth have the right to more equitable educational and social resources and political representation, Beyond Resistance! offers new insights into how to increase the effectiveness of youth development and education programs, and how to create responsive youth policies at the local, state, and federal level.
