“The Generation of Transition in Eastern Europe: A Generation of Uncertainty – a Generation of Distrust?” – Preparatory Workshop, Berlin 24 September 2018
After a few months of desk research and more than 49 semi-structured interviews with representatives of the Generation of Transition from Russia to Poland, we are happy to announce that we are a step closer to publishing a report on values, attitudes and patterns of engagement of young adults in Eastern Europe. It is meant to inform policy makers, researchers and practitioners. “The Generation of Transition in Eastern Europe: A Generation of Uncertainty – a Generation of Distrust?” is the title of the study that brought practitioners and researchers for a short discussion in Berlin last week in the beautiful Luisenbad Public Library. Our partners from the German-Russian Exchange (DRA) hosted the meeting, kindly supported by the German Federal Agency for Civic Education (bpb). Save the date for our conference, per invitation only. On November 22 and 23, 2018 we plan a launch of the study at a conference in Sofia, Bulgaria with few questions in mind:Go Back
- Who is the generation of transition and is it any different from other generations in Eastern Europe?
- Is there a correlation between the experience of transition from communism to democracy and the current democratic backsliding in the region?
- What is the role of civics in overcoming people’s disappointment from and distrust in democracy?
- How does civic education look like in countries with openly anti-democratic governments?
