09 SES 14 A, Evaluating the Citizenship Competences of Young Adolescents in Europe: Methods, Patterns and Trends
Recent developments in the economic and social politics of Europe have led to an increased interest in the intentions of young people to participate as citizens. This paper focuses on data from students from 26 European countries (Schulz et al, 2010; Kerr et al, 2010) and presents findings on their intentions to get involved in different forms of political participation. Multivariate models explaining student intentions to participate included predictors such as on student background characteristics (e.g. gender, ethnicity and SES), civic knowledge, attitudes towards participation (trust in institutions, self-efficacy and internal political efficacy), as well as reports on participation in civic-related activities inside and outside of school. The analyses presented in this paper are carried out through a set of multivariate regression models for citizenship intentions across countries. Student outcomes are compared and interpreted in light of data from a national contexts survey. First analyses have shown that factors explaining intentions to participate depend on the form of future participation. Whereas expected electoral participation is consistently related to civic knowledge and participation at school, expectations to engage more actively in politics were rather associated with reports on students’ participation in community activities and trust in institutions.
