New book on how young people develop attitudes towards the EU

In German language the book presents the results of Christina Ortners PhD thesis which was conducted within the Doctoral Programme of SCEUS and honoured with the Otto-Wittschier Science Award in 2014. The programme was established in 2008 and aims at educating the next generation of academics in the field or European Union Research. Ortners study analyses how young adults develop orientations towards the EU in the course of mediated experiences. On the methodological level it follows an approach in the tradition of qualitative social science. On the level of concrete methods it combines qualitative interviews with a quantitative online-survey. In doing so it is able to offer comprehensive insights in how young adults think and feel about the EU and how mediated experiences contribute to this in comparison to educational experiences, personal discussions and direct contacts with the EU. As different patterns of orientations as well as typical repertoires of EU-related experiences are identified the study allows a differentiated view on various groups. In a last step the results are integrated into an evidence-based theoretical model that explains the development of orientations towards the EU in the course of daily experiences.
