Abstract

This paper discusses the position of young people in Ser­bia after October 5th  2000, as can be inferred from the evidence collected in the study ‘Politics and everyday life: Serbia 1999-2002’. The author identifies amongst young people four basic modes of self-positioning within the current social context, as de­scribed by the following labels: ‘B92 generation’, ‘provincials’, ‘fundamentalists’ and ‘guests’. These views encompass politics, their own social and political engagement, views of the future, and  their own selves.
