Emerging Adulthood Study
This is a large cross-national study on emerging adults living mostly in countries of the former communist bloc in Europe. The project addresses emerging adulthood which has increasingly attracted much attention as separate period of the life course in industrialized societies, lasting about as long as adolescence. The former Iron Curtain or post-communist countries provide a fascinating context in which to study emerging adulthood processes and young people in these under researched context and cultures.
