March 2001

Under Soviet rule, young people in Central and Eastern Europe were drilled into the ideology of communism - indoctrinated with its sense of purpose, of structure, of belonging. The collapse of communist authoritarian rule has brought greater freedom of choice and opportunity for all. But it's also created a climate of growing uncertainty, especially for the 65 million young people in the region. As the gulf between the "have's" and the "have not's" has widened, the former safe and well-trodden road from childhood to adulthood has increasingly been swept away. Stripped of their sense of "belonging", many young people in Eastern Europe have become "outsiders", as this Life programme shows.
