Claiming spaces and struggling for recognition. Comparative Case Study Report. PARTISPACE Deliverable 4.3
Year of production: 2017
Aiming at contributing to a better understanding of the current developments, paradoxes and ways to deal with youth political participation in Europe, the main research question of the PARTISPACE project is: How and where do 15- to 30 year-old young people participate differently across social milieus and youth cultural scenes and across eight European cities (framed by different national welfare, education and youth policies)?
In relation to this research question, this report was intended to analyse case studies which explore participation practices in formal, non-formal and informal contexts and reconstruct practices, meanings, relationship and dynamics of different forms of youth participation in a comparative perspective and local constellations of youth participation. In so doing, the report has outlined a mosaic of the different practices, activities, styles and spaces wherein young people situate their participation in the eight countries involved in the PARTISPACE project.
