What is YOUTH and HISTORY?

YOUTH and HISTORY is the name of an empi­ri­cal rese­arch pro­ject on
his­to­ri­cal con­scious­ness and poli­ti­cal atti­tu­des among teen­agers in 27
coun­tries in Euro­pe and some bor­de­ring ter­ri­to­ries. It has been initiated
some 6 years ago by Magne Angvik
(Ber­gen, Nor­way) and Bodo von Borries
(Ham­burg, Ger­ma­ny). The pro­ject group has
sin­ce grown to unit­ing more than 30 rese­ar­chers from all par­ti­ci­pa­ting
and dif­fe­rent aca­de­mic disciplines. 

The project’s method has been a quan­ti­ta­ti­ve sur­vey using a standardized
ques­ti­onn­aire which was put to near­ly 32,000 stu­dents. Ano­t­her questionnaire
was fil­led out by their tea­chers (1,250). 

The field pha­se of the pro­ject lay in 1994/​95. Reports and analyses
have been publis­hed sin­ce 1996 (see publi­ca­ti­on-list). 

In March 1997, a two-volu­me docu­men­ta­ti­on, description
and ana­ly­sis
of YOUTH and HISTORY was publis­hed, accompanied
by a CD-ROM con­tai­ning the data­ba­ses of students
and teachers.
