Abstract

Globalization process has an especially relevant impact on the younger generations. On the one hand, younger generations have lived in a more direct way the economic transformations and the restructuring of the labor markets. These changes have generated a greater experience of vulnerability and uncertainty that removes the foundations on which collective identities have been based in industrial societies. On the other hand, young people are also the group that has most rapidly embraced the process of socio-cultural globalization. They are the generation that has been most exposed to global culture, to the Internet and global social networks, in contexts of constant migratory flows and with more transnational experiences or expectations. However, this does not mean that the role of national identities is diminishing. States keep building national identifications through education and cultural or memory policies. Moreover, the same process of globalization has been accompanied by a political resurgence of nationalism, sub-state national conflicts or populism that appeals to national identities. This set of factors draws an extremely complex collective identity formation process that has, in turn, consequences on the values and civic attitudes of these young citizens. In this multidisciplinary panel, the proposed papers analyse from different points of view interrelation between the different levels of young people’ identifications, roles of different actors in the formation of youth identities, and possible consequences of national and global identities on their social attitudes. The papers, by quantitative, qualitative or mixed method approach use national or cross-national data from different countries participating in the project ‘Cultural Heritage and Identities of Europe’s Future (CHIEF)’. CHIEF is a research project under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program that attempts to explore the processes of cultural transition and privileging of various identities through an inter-disciplinary, multi-sectoral and transnational partnership in nine countries in and outside the EU. The proposed panel would present some of the key findings of the CHIEF project based on large N surveys of students, in-depth interviews, field studies, and ethnographies.
