The post-Soviet space is constantly changing and youth plays a special role in it – be it in the political changes in Ukraine since 2014, the current protests in Belarus or the protests in Russia. Youth in many post-Soviet countries request more genuine forms of political participation and they play a significant role in political and societal changes in their countries.
It is important to engage with these young people – however contradictory and diverse their views and values are. In this event, we present the results of the study by Dr. Félix Krawatzek, researcher at ZOiS in Berlin, who compares the attitudes of young people in the three countries, drawing on his own research and the data of the FES Youth Studies.
