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.
