Researchers from nine European countries are involved in this European Commission, Horizon 2020 project. The EURYKA project ('Reinventing Democracy in Europe: Youth Doing Politics in Times of Increasing Inequalities') is coordinated by the University of Geneva and involves scientists from France (SciencesPo), Germany (University of Siegen), Greece (University of Crete), Italy (Scuola Normale Superiore), Poland (University of Warsaw), Spain (Open University of Catalonia), Sweden (University of Uppsala), and the United Kingdom (University of Sheffield).

EURYKA aims to study the relations between inequalities and young people's ways of doing politics and to advance scenarios for future democratic models and political systems in Europe that are more inclusive for young people. To achieve this, it will: (1) provide systematic evidence on the mechanisms for coping with inequalities which are embedded in young people's ways of doing politics; these coping mechanisms are manifested in multiple forms, for example, as either political (dis)engagement and contestation online and offline or as (trans-)national democratic innovation and experimentation; (2) generate knowledge on young people's values, attitudes, and behaviors related to democracy, power, politics, policymaking, social and political participation (online and offline) and the organization of economic, social and private life in order to identify ways to strengthen youth political participation and engagement with democratic life in Europe; (3) suggest a set of future scenarios for the development of democracy and political participation in Europe, placing particular emphasis on empowering young people especially those with fewer opportunities. The research design consists of a multidimensional theoretical framework that combines macro-level (institutional), meso-level (organizational), and micro-level (individual) explanatory factors, and an integrated methodological approach based on multiple sources and methods (policy analysis, claims-making analysis, organizational survey, panel survey, survey experiments, biographical interviews, and social media analysis).
