Abstract

«Youth and History: A Comparative European Survey on Historical Consciousness and Political Attitudes among Adolescents” (1994-1995) and European Social Survey (2003) were conducted ten years apart. This paper compares the values, representations, cultural and political beliefs of Greek adolescents as they emerged from the two studies. There are great similarities in the responses. The youths appear to distrust politics, stress law and order, trust the laws and the police and turn towards religion. However, on the one hand they appear to be conservative, ethnocentric and xenophobic whereas on the other they believe in social justice, in sexual freedom and in democratic institutions. The responses are discussed in the light of the notion of modernity and of the developmental phase of adolescence.
