Youth participation, globalisation and democracy

Helmut Willems, Marie Schneider

Globalisation and its consequences have led to transformations of various life stages. Childhood and youth are especially affected by these shifts. Formerly known as a moratorium for the preparation of adulthood through education and apprenticeship, this description of youth has changed. Young people have to design their lives not only for adolescence but also to be able to fulfil future expectations.
