Chapter Summary

This chapter analyses the principal data, making use of various quantitative and qualitative surveys that offer valuable information on the religious attitudes of young people in France, and on their relationship to religion in general. From 2006 to 2009, the European REDCo programme focused on the issue of religion in school. Within the framework of this programme, the French participants carried out surveys among young people from 14 to 16 years old that provided a wealth of information on the religious attitudes of French youth. Defining and characterising the category "young people," the chapter gives an overview of the state of research in this area, on the basis of data obtained prior to the REDCo programme (the EVS data in particular). The chapter present and analyse the valuable information that the REDCo data has given us on young people's religious attitudes.
