EURYKA - Reinventing Democracy in Europe: Youth Doing Politics in Times of Increasing Inequalities is a cross-national research project which provides systematic and practice-related knowledge about how inequalities mediate youth political participation. It suggests novel democratic models to help reimagine a more inclusive European politics. EURYKA brings together researchers and civil society practitioners from nine European countries: France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

With the aim of strengthening European democratic life, the project intends to reach a better understanding of the conditions, processes, and mechanisms underpinning how young people do politics: how do they form opinions and take actions to bring about social and political change?

At the core of EURYKA’s conceptual framework lies the idea of youth political participation as forms of coping mechanism for dealing with inequalities. We thus investigate the norms, values, attitudes and behaviors underpinning such mechanisms and how these relate to issues such as democracy, power, politics, policy-making, social and political participation (online and offline) and the organization of economic, social and private life.
