FUKS, Mario. Atitudes, cognição e participação política: padrões de influência dos ambientes de socialização sobre o perfil político dos jovens. Opin. Publica [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.1, pp. 88-108. ISSN 0104-6276.

The debate about the role of socialization in the acquisition of political knowledge, attitudes and participation of young people reminds us constantly that the family and school environments are the crucial factor in this process. But this does not answer a number of questions. One of them is the interaction between the various factors that comprise these environments and the specific mechanisms through which they generate effects on the political profile of young people. This dynamic is the focus of this article and our main argument is that it creates distinct patterns of influence of these environments, depending on the dimension considered. Our analyzes are based on data from a survey conducted in 2008 with high school students of the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

Keywords : political socialization; political attitudes; political participation; political knowledge; youth.
