On Monday 11 December, in Madrid, we presented the policy study ‘Youth Support for Democracy in Spain: Democracy in the Face of Disadvantage‘, which analyses the attitudes of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds towards democracy.

This publication was produced by FEPS in collaboration with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung and the Felipe González Foundation and is part of the FEPS series Builders of Progress, which analyses the main concerns and aspirations of young Europeans.

All information about the event can also be found on Felipe Gonzalez Foundation’s website (in Spanish). The event was held in Spanish.
