Abstract

In taking a context and culture-sensitive comparative research approach on a single-country study, this paper tries to understand young people’s ideas and perspectives on growing up in England in the time of Brexit. In this study, 17 focus groups were conducted with young people aged 15 to 17 in spring 2019. In these focus groups, participants conducted cross-country and regional comparisons to position themselves and underline their ideas. These comparisons give insights into young people’s experiences with Brexit and beyond. Additionally, the findings allow an understanding of the array of contextual conditions that are meaningful for youth citizenship participation.
