adical Futures? Youth, Politics and Activism in Contemporary Europe features a collection of articles originating from MYPLACE (Memory, Youth, Political Legacy and Civic Engagement), which has mapped the relationship between political heritage, forms and levels of civic and political engagement of young people in Europe, and their potential receptivity to radical and populist political agendas.

Explores the meanings of activism among young people engaged in a range of organisations and movements
Draws on new primary data sets from 14 countries collected under a common research design by the authors
Challenges claims of rising ‘apathy’ among young people as well as counter-claims that their participation has simply shifted to ‘informal’ activities
Makes critical interventions into theory underpinning the fields of youth studies, democratic theory and participation, memory studies, and far right studies
