Abstract [en]

Youth is claimed to play a crucial role in changes of political behavior. In this analysis, 14-year-olds in 24 European and North American countries self-predict a fairly wide repertoire. Voting is challenged particularly by protest activities. Southern Europeans demonstrate the widest predicted repertoire, not explained by levels of social capital, post-materialistic values, or political trust, but by resources, motivation, and school experiences. However, reports from about the same cohort some years later reveals a more limited political engagement. The cross-country pattern is altered by various structural and cultural factors. Political socialization processes in late adolescence and early adulthood appear to be both influential and dissimilarly manifested across nations. Therefore, cautiousness in viewing very young people as heralds of major political behavioral changes is recommended.
