Special monograph. Youth in Europe: characterizing the millennials
The millennial generation, those born between the early 80’s and mid- 90’s, or even early 2000’s, are a very different generation from their predecessor, Generation X, and their successor, Generation Z. The millennials are today’s European youth and this dossier studies their identifying features and their political motivation and demotivation.
