With EU-elections coming up in 2004 this articles focuses on young Austrians' willingness to take part in elections at a EU-level. On the basis of an international survey among young Europeans it will show how many young people in Austria express their intention to vote, how this compares with other European young people and how important EU-elections are considered relative to elections on other political levels. It will also analyse which factors influence interest in European politics. Further, an analysis of a focus group interview in Vienna will reveal the young people's attitudes towards the EU-elections. The results show that a substantial part of the respondents are willing to vote. However, there are a number of problems associated with democracy on a EU-level impairing people's motivation to get involved and active.
