YOUNG PEOPLE IN SERBIA 2015

Short description:
This youth study provides an overview of the civic and political perceptions as well as the individual experiences of young people in Serbia. It explores the attitudes, beliefs and expectations of a younger generation which mainly grew up in a transition country fifteen years after the democratic change. The study shows in general terms that young people in Serbia still face strong constraints such as inefficient education, high unemployment, financial and living dependencies and a deep feeling of exclusion from politics. While at the same time defines their individual perception of their own future and that their satisfaction with life is rather optimistic. This survey also includes recommendations to policies and decision makers in Serbia on how to improve the living conditions of young people and to show to the younger generation of today that they are much needed in order to build a better future in a country still in transition, but also on a long road to Europe.
