In this chapter, we offer un multidimensional conception of political interest. We base this new conception on hierarchical ascending classifications and we propose a measure that differs from the usual conceptions of political interest which are usually based on few indicators. [less ▲]

Few studies have looked at the Internet as a source of political knowledge, particularly in Belgium. In April 2009, a questionnaire distributed to 1000 young people between 16 and 21 years of age as well as a citizen’s conference of another 100 young adults addressed various political issues (commitment, citizenship, participation and political interest) and measured, among other things, the impact of the Internet. This paper presents some of our preliminary findings: it confirms that the traditional idea of interest in politics is shared by one third of your sample, that the non-traditional views on politics is certainly higher, but we argue that the political use of the Web is limited to people already strongly interested in politics.

On 4th December 2008, 234 students in political and social sciences of the Université de Liège, Belgium, were invited to “Draw Belgium” on a blank sheet of paper. No other guidelines were given, so total freedom was left to the students. In addition to this request, the young citizens were asked to fill in a 19-question questionnaire about their federal perceptions and preferences as well as some political and socio-demographic indicators. The analysis of the results does contain interesting material for discussion about memory process and about attitudes towards European integration [less ▲]

The question of lowering the voting age to 16 has long been debated in university circles. In the last Austrian elections, young people aged 16 and older were invited to vote, even if young people themselves are divided over this issue, even hostile to the idea. Nevertheless, isn’t such a question, which is rarely discussed by the larger public and touches on several dimensions of a person’s life, an ideal topic for a debate, where the confrontation of ideas may change opinions and reveal – or even modify – young people’s global attitudes towards political interest and participation? A sample of one hundred 15- to 21-year-old youth in French-speaking Belgium was selected to discuss the possibility of lowering the voting age to 16, as well as political interest and political participation, during one day with five experts. The same questionnaire was filled in in the beginning and at the end of the day. These first results are presented here. They show little evolution during the discussion, in a sample already largely against the idea of lowering the voting age. [less ▲]

La question de l’abaissement du droit de vote à 16 ans a toujours fait l’objet de débats dans certains cercles universitaires. Lors des dernières élections autrichiennes, les jeunes de 16 ans et plus ont été invités à voter même si les jeunes eux-mêmes sont souvent partagés, voire hostiles à l’idée. Or, une question comme le droit de vote à 16 ans, peu discutée publiquement et engageant plusieurs dimensions de la vie d’un individu, n’est-elle pas une question de débat idéale, où la confrontation des idées peut amener à modifier les points de vue et révéler – et même modifier – les attitudes plus globales des jeunes envers l’intérêt politique et la participation ? Partant d’un sondage aléatoire auprès des 15-21 ans en Belgique francophone, un sous-échantillon de 400 jeunes sera retenu pour discuter du vote à 16 ans, de l’intérêt et de leur participation politique lors d’une journée avec 5 experts. Le sondage initial sera redistribué pour mesurer l’impact de la discussion et des entretiens approfondis seront menés avec un sous-groupe pour étudier les mécanismes de socialisation politique. Ces premiers résultats sont présentés. [less ▲]

Du 10 au 24 avril 2009, 1000 jeunes Wallons et Bruxellois âgés de 16 à 21 ans ont été interrogés par téléphone par la maison de sondage Dedicated Research. Le questionnaire qui leur a été soumis contenait une quarantaine de questions visant à mesurer leur intérêt et leurs préférences politiques, ainsi qu’à évaluer leur opinion sur la possibilité d’abaisser la majorité électorale à 16 ans. Ce sondage aléatoire n’est que la première étape d’une recherche organisée par l’Unité de politologie générale de l’Université de Liège qui devrait durer deux ans. Les résultats présentés dans ce rapport préliminaire ne concernent que les 598 répondants âgés de 18 à 21 ans de notre échantillon. La marge d’erreur est de 4,01 %, 19 fois sur 20. [less ▲]

"Draw Belgium" was the unique guideline that was given to 234 students in political and social sciences of the Université de Liège, Belgium, on December 4, 2008. In addition to this request, the young citizens were asked to fill in a 19-question questionnaire about their federal perceptions and preferences as well as some political and socio-demographic indicators. Relying on this experimental research, this book explores the relationships between the federal representations, perceptions and preferences of young Francophone Belgians who grew up in the era of federalism and who will have the task to shape tomorrow’s Belgium.

Today many people argue that the youth is uninterested in politics; according to them, there is amongst the young people some sort of political apathy. In fact, electoral turnout declines dramatically in all Western democracies, especially among the young voters. However, drawing from a survey on 1437 students (16-18 y. old), we demonstrate that some young people do engage, participate and are interested in politics. Above all, a multifaceted analysis of political participation and interest is needed to depict the political attitudes of the today’s youth. [less ▲]
