Youth in Central and Eastern Europe
e-ISSN 2720-4049; 2409-952X
This periodical was established by researchers concerned with problems affecting young people in Central and Eastern Europe. Its main aim is to bring together specialists dealing with different aspects of the functioning of young people in society. The articles to be published will address youth issues from both macro- and microsocial perspectives. We will publish texts which will focus on young people using both qualitative and quantitative methodologies. Texts may have a theoretical and / or practical character. We welcome submissions from younger as well as more experienced researchers. The periodical is open to anybody who has interesting and original contributions to make regarding young people and associated social problems.
We take the view that young people from this part of Europe face particular social problems. The collapse of the USSR and the creation of new countries, and the consequent emergence of violent and profound transformational processes, has had widespread social repercussions. Modernisation and globalisation have affected the newly independent countries of the former Eastern Bloc. Young people are subject to these processes, and as we carry out detailed observations of this group, we gain an insight into how society is changing. Our intention is to gather data and make it accessible to all parties who are interested in issues affecting young people, in particular in this part of Europe. Once again, we welcome all parties willing to participate in the process of accumulating information about young people in society and extending the boundaries of our knowledge in this area. We keenly anticipate your readership and contributions.
