Europe's Young Adults and Religion

The Benedict XVI Centre and the Institut Catholique de Paris are pleased to release their joint report: Europe’s Young Adults and Religion (English) / Les jeunes adultes et la religion en Europe (Français).

Using recent data from the European Social Survey, the report explores religious affiliation and practice among 16-29 year-olds in 22 European countries. The report also features more in-depth discussion of young adults’ religiosity in France and UK, as well as on the levels of specifically Catholic affiliation and practice across Europe.

Authored by Prof Stephen Bullivant, the report is chiefly intended to inform the Synod of Bishops, to be held in Rome in October 2018. However, there is much in the report likely to be of wider interest.
