Voorbij het narratief van neergang

Auteur: ELCHARDUS Mark
Publicatie: 2015
Uitgever: Lanoo Campus
Taal : Nederlands en frans

Onze samenleving zit in een neerwaartse spiraal. Dit gevoel is sterk aanwezig bij de 2000 jongvolwassenen die voor dit boek werden geïnterviewd. In Voorbij het narratief van neergang analyseert socioloog Mark Elchardus dit wijdverbreide en hardnekkige gevoel, het geloof dat onze welvaart e welzijn teloorgaan, dat alles van waarde verloren gaan.

Maar gelukkig is het niet alleen kommer en kwel. Integendeel. Wat hun persoonlijke toekomstdromen betreft, tonen de jongvolwassenen zich bijzonder positief. Het boek beschrijft hun leven, hun zorgen en dromen. Daarin tekent zich een nieuwe samenleving met nieuwe mogelijkheden af. En toch... Deze generatie is angstig omdat de maatschappelijke neergang haar overweldigt en zij zich niet bij machte voelt om het tij te keren.

Belgium offers a wide range of social and recreational forums to its youth. However, certain groups seem to be ill-represented in our youth work. For that reason, the Foundation P&V has created the project "Live Together: promoting the accessibility of young people's associations". This project spanning several years wants to enhance the debate on several key sectors for young people, in direct contact with the target group itself. This book is the result of a bilingual seminal that took place on 10 December 2004 in preparation to this project.
