Project Description

 The goal of the project is to assess the present level of civic involvement of the Romanian youth, in order to identify those specific needs or ideas that would make them take a stand, and in order to understand the way in which they position themselves with respect to the problems existing in our society. On the other hand, an extensive goal of the project is to find out how young people see, define and understand such concepts as “activism” and “civic involvement”. Last but not least, there is an imperative need to describe and analyze the “culture of protest” in Romania.      

The objectives are:

  • assessing the current level of social, political and cultural involvement of the Romanian youth;
  • uncovering the reasons or ideas that might determine youth to organize and be politically active as a community;
  • finding a pattern of youth activism in Romania after 1989.
