CABASES, M. Àngels; FEIXA, Carles  and  CIVIT, Roger. Young people and political trust in a context of social and institutional destabilization: A comparative study in countries of the Mediterranean Basin. Ultima décad. [online]. 2015, vol.23, n.42, pp.149-185. ISSN 0718-2236.

In recent years and in the North and South of the Mediterranean have emerged several youth protest movements against political and economic institutions, which include the «arab spring» and the «15M» in Spain, two models that took different ways and achieved unequal results. This paper discusses about two basic questions: do they respond to different socioeconomic situations and which shared factors are there? Through the exploitation of opinion polls data from international surveys, the objective of this article is to analyse a set of economic and social agents that have influenced the growing distrust of this group towards the governments of their respective countries.

Keywords : disaffection policy; multilevel analysis; youth unemployment; education; arab spring; 15m.
