2015-11-27 Ukraine: Inclusion of the Youth into Democratic Processes Through Overcoming Inequalities


 Inclusion of the Youth into Democratic Processes Through Overcoming Inequalities

Description of the project offered: 
Social isolation of the youth gives rise to numerous problems in society and requires a separate study. Neglect and depoliticization of the youth result in their exclusion. Exclusion, in its turn, leads to an unequal access and non-participation of the youth in democratic processes in society. Thus, we suggest carrying out a separate empirical study of the causes of the youth social isolation and searching for possible compensatory mechanisms. 
It is also planned to study the influence of inequality on the youth inclusion in the changing world. Special attention will be focused on the youth engagement and perception of their own social status. One cannot change the world but one can his attitude towards it.
Obstacles to the youth access to power, factors of support and suppression of the local youth initiatives and mechanisms of the youth support and participation in democracy forms (existing and new ways) should be actualized as well.
As a separate section, we plan to carry out an empirical study of:
 values of high school students as future citizens and their key democratic values and support level of democratic processes in various forms; 
 causes of the youth hesitation to use their own voice;
 level of dependency on parents according to the social position;
 efficiency of the existing forms of children inclusion into democratic processes.
Within a new democratic model actualization, we plan to study the efficiency of inclusion through social cohesion in the form of youth clubs that will contribute to reducing negative developments caused by the society polarization and reviving democracy in the youth environment.
The concept of creating a trusted community in the form of a youth club, as a small social platform reflecting social and cultural diversity of the youth, may be another project product.
