Call for Applications: Authors for regional Youth Study SEE 2023/2024

Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Dialogue Southeast Europe is starting the new round of regional youth studies in 2023. The Youth Studies are a comprehensive, flagship project of the Foundation and we plan to cover 12 countries of Southeast Europe with the new regional report. The FES SOE has already published regional youth studies in 2015 and 2018/2019.


For the purpose of authoring the regional Youth Study 2023/2024, FES SOE invites all interested agencies and academic workers/researchers to apply to the Open Call for Authors. Please note that the research portion of the study is commissioned separately, and that FES SOE fully covers the survey (approximately 125 questions) for the youth in the region. The survey is almost finalized and will be conducted on a representative sample of youth in 12 countries of the region. The authors will receive data based on which they will author the study. The study covers the following topics:

  • A. Values, religion, and trust;
  • B. Family and friends;
  • C. Mobility
  • E. Education
  • F. Employment
  • G. Politics.
  • I. Demographic data.
