ESA Research Network 30 ‘Youth and Generation’ | Youth in the post-pandemic: from experiences of inequalities to new opportunities for solidarities

The COVID-19 outbreak and now the cost-of-living crisis have led to worldwide fast-paced and unprecedented socio-economic and political changes with deep implications for young people’s education, future plans and employment prospects, but also for their everyday and social lives.

In this context, the 2023 RN30 ESA Mid-term Conference in Sardinia (20th-23rd September 2023) seeks to account for the continuity between pre-pandemic and post-pandemic experiences of inequalities while also exploring how young people come together to forge new forms of solidarities channeling their active responses and commitment to change with and through companionship with their peers.

The organizares invite collegues to submit abstracts of max 300 words which explore youth unequal experiences and solidarities in multiple fields, such as young people’s views of the future during times of increased risk and uncertainty; education and employment prospects; youth identities; activism and civic engagement; experiences of migration and mobilities; youth cultures and subcultures; transitions to adulthood and more. Comparative perspectives on how youth are experiencing inequalities and solidarities in the past or beyond Europe are also welcome.

Abstract are to be sent to and by the 13th March 2023.
