Generations Z in Europe. Insights, Inputs and Implications

For several years, millennials, digital natives, and several other names for the “Generation Y” are in the focus of academic research and even more on the front page of the discussions of practitioners in companies, politicians, teachers, parents, and of course the media in general. However, since a few years, a new generation moves into focus. Even though it got with “Generation Z” a name not too exciting, this group of young people born after 1990 is about to become a real game changer: As the New York Times phrased “Move Over, Millennials, Here Comes Generation Z”. And this Generation Z is totally different from other generations before, for instance: more realistic, with mistrust of politicians, companies or media and furthermore prefers a very strict separation of work and private life. In this regard companies should start to get ready for them.

This book is the first to compare the European Generation Z (born 1990–1995) in terms of country and culture specific drivers and characteristics based on interdisciplinary and international scientific research. It was published at Emerald in 2019 .

The book is based on an international and interdisciplinary conference ("Generation Z in Europe") held at Saarland University in November 2016 and organized by the Chair of Business Science, esp. Organisation, Human Resources and Information Management, and the CEUS.

Europa jenseits des Konvergenzparadigmas. Divergenz – Dynamik – Diskurs

Convergence in the sense of standardisation and harmonisation has always been a constitutive political paradigm for the European Union to enable it to lead European societies to greater unity, prosperity and solidarity. The benefit of this for economic and monetary fields, trade or climate protection is obvious. This interdisciplinary volume, which is addressed to researchers, students and also politicians and other readers interested in this subject, questions this convergence paradigm in a constructive manner: Which dynamics exist in the processes of Europeanisation that have led to divergence? What potential might have been released thereby? Which mechanisms steer these processes? In this study. the editorial team focusing on the subject of ‘Europe’ at Saarland University in Saarbrücken contrast various perspectives on political, legal, economic, (socio-)cultural and language policy processes.
