The main goal of the project was to analyze the situation of the new generation in the countries with a past of the communist regime.

The project consortium brought together research teams from eight different countries. Six of them represent Europe (Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Latvia, Russia and Germany) and two countries represent Asia (Vietnam and China).

Within the framework of the research, a comparison of youth in the Polish-Latvian perspective was prepared, namely, the situation of young people in the social, demographic, economic and cultural spheres in Latvia as one of the post-communist countries was analyzed.

The study included 6 thematic modules:

1. the socio-social and economic causes of change processes in post-communist countries;

2. socialization processes and their results: life trends, values, life strategies of young people;

3. education and its role in positioning and changing the social structure;

4. starting adult life (work, family and private life, free time);

5. presence in society;

6. social integration of young people and threats to social cohesion – towards the issue of the role of young people in transition processes and social change (including in the regions).
