The author – Kálmán Gábor, sociologist, youth researcher from Hungary – interprets the situation of hungarian youth abroad from the hypothesis that in the 1990’s, after the fall of communism their position shifted from the periphery to the center. This means that the hungarian youth abroad, as well as in Hungary, is subject to many kinds of pressure: from competition in school to unemployment, premature independence, entering the market too early, and different stress-fighting techniques. For the Eastern European youth, their central position means better chances in a harshening competition, but first of all, the urge to meet the same, or almost the same challenges as Western-European youth.
