Im Frühling 2015 demonstrierten 15.000 luxemburgische Schüler und Studenten gegen ein Gesetzesprojekt der Regierung, das die bestehenden Studentenbeihilfen kürzen wollte. Angesichts einer rückläufigen politischen Beteiligung bei Jugendlichen (auch) in Luxemburg war dieses Ereignis Anlass für viele Fachleute, über das politische Interesse und die politische Beteiligung Jugendlicher im luxemburgischen Kontext neu nachzudenken. Der vorliegende Beitrag versucht einen ersten Befund zur Situation der politischen und gesellschaftlichen Beteiligung junger Menschen in Luxemburg zu geben. [less ▲]

This report summarises the results of a study of the learning effects in the projects of the European Union "Youth in Action” programme (YiA). This national study is part of a European study into non-formal learning and takes an academic look at the learning and educational processes within the scope of the projects. The main area of interest here are projects financed by the Luxembourg Agency for the YiA programme. By incorporating them into the European study, which is being carried out by the international RAY Network, the results can also be compared to those of other countries. [less ▲]

European societies are reshaping and young generations in particular face the subsequent economic and social changes. The current economic crisis exacerbates the risk of youth poverty, aggravates social exclusion, and threatens the overall integration and participation of young people (Willems, Heinen & Meyers, 2012). Policymakers as well as stakeholders of the practical field have to find answers and solutions to tackle these challenges. They need reliable knowledge and systematic information to develop appropriate and effective measures. Social reporting generating “information on social structures and processes and on preconditions and consequences of social policy, regularly, in time, systematically, and autonomously” (Zapf, 1977, p.11) can provide an important evidence base for the decision-making process in policy and praxis. Our contribution starts with the argument that in modern knowledge societies, the autonomy of science has decreased and has become more open to politics and praxis. This becomes obvious by an increasing importance of co-production and participation in science and research (Nowotny, 2001; Weingart, 1997). Using the first Luxembourgish youth report as an example, we outline its underlying innovative concept of participatory social reporting. The report’s main characteristic is the systematic involvement of experts from the fields of policy, practice and research throughout the entire period of reporting. It aims to open the research process to experts and to integrate their professional knowledge (Willems et al., 2010). The presented concept of youth reporting is not an autonomous and exclusive process reserved to researchers. It is rather a “hybrid panel” (Lüders, 2006) where evidence is negotiated in a co-productive process between researchers and experts. Thus, the concept is characterised by its open, participatory and dialogue approach. We show how this concept was realised in the different phases and how it contributes to the reporting process: (1) In a first phase to explore socially relevant topics and issues and to define an agenda, (2) in a second phase to generate evidence and (3) in a final phase to define measures and actions for policymakers.

Young people’s voting turnout, political interest, party membership and trust in politicians have decreased in many European countries for the last decades (European Commission, 2009; Stolle & Hooghe, 2005). Many social scientists suggest that this reduced interest and engagement is especially due to the increasing gap between the political system on the one hand and young people’s social situation on the other. They argue that conventional political forms of participation are less adapted to the diversity of youth lifestyles and forms of (self)-expression and that political decision making in times of economic crisis and rapid social change is not concerned with the problems of young people, their transition into labour market and their integration into society (Willems, Heinen & Meyers, 2012). The mobilization of an increasing number of young people for alternative forms of social and political engagement proves that the young generation is still engaged in democratic and civic behaviour. Young people believe in democratic values and they show high engagement in social, cultural and civil activities. They engage in political issues, but they do it different to the older generations (Norris, 2003; Sloam, 2011) The new forms of young people’s participation reflect their lifestyles and are adapted to their individual needs and interests. Their activities are more punctual, delimited, action-orientated, not hierarchical, and issue-based. Young people prefer forms of participation like the internet, petitions, demonstrations and consumer activism. Thus, they show rather a changed citizenship than a general political apathy (Dalton, 2008). Our contribution examines this broader concept of participation and takes the large variety of youth specific forms of participation into account. The presented findings are principally based on analysis of the European Social Values Studyurvey (EVSS). The main purpose is to elaborate on the factors that influence young people’s activities in the wide range of political engagement: What are the structural and individual conditions for young people’s engagement in the different fields? We focus on three levels: (1) the macro-level (e.g. democratic culture of the country), (2) the meso-level (e.g. leisure activities, membership in associations), and (3) the micro-level (e.g. age, gender, migration background, education).
