«Полит-тусовка» - альтернативное публичное пространство в сфере молодежной политики
The article represents the results of a study of new youth solidarities based of the research of the “Polit-gramota”. The club is analyzed as an alternative public space of young people that provides the members with opportunities for professional socialization as politicians, journalists and activists. It also can be viewed as a collective strategy of overcoming the barriers on the entry to the ‘adult’ politics and journalism. By creating this alternative space the ‘Polit-gramota’ members reinterpret the traditional political institutions and make the voice of the youth be heard, whereas in the dominating discourse young people are not actively represented and are viewed as a passive subject of policies.
