Low political participation, dissatisfaction with the political class and ambivalent attitudes to democracy are characteristics of most of the countries within the MYPLACE project ; this paper explores relations, attitudes, responses and various positions of Croatian youth under specific political and historic legacy, in the present time of crisis, protests and new social actors. We analysed the whole spectrum of young people’s reactions, from passivity to several forms of (anti)political action. Our approach is based on the triangulation of data from the survey sample (N=1217 at two locations), the follow up semi-structured interviews with volunteers from the survey ( N=61at two locations), and the three conducted ethnographies (football fans as social actors, anti-fascist punk activism and student movement against commercialisation of education). On the basis of the survey data, we’ve identified three groups of young people regarding their relation toward democratic and non-democratic political systems: ‘pro-democratic’, ‘anti-democratic’ and ‘without preferences’. We focused on differences between those groups with regard to socio-demographic characteristics, political sophistication, political attitudes (trust in institutions, attitudes toward politicians, satisfaction with democracy, political efficacy, approval of violence), history (interest in history, importance of commemorations, family transmissions) and war related losses. The most widespread attitudes among our respondents are dissatisfaction with politics and the notion that all politicians belong to the same corrupted) class. Even though those attitudes are shared by most of the participants in the three ethnographies, the latter, as opposed to the participants of the survey and the interviews, show more active attitude – i.e., suggest the rise of new social actors.
