This reflects the idea that youth (however this is defined) would be a biographical phase in which people are more likely to participate in protests. This interpretation is quite common in several studies about the protests in 1980–81. 12 One might therefore assume that younger people above a certain age should show greater biographical proclivity to protest because they have less work and family obligations and, therefore fewer reasons, which might hinder their engagement. The problem with this assumption is that, in a similar way to the strong generational concept, the notion that the particularities of this transitional phase between childhood and adulthood would explain the protest of 1980–81 has to address the issue of differential participation in protests by persons from the same age group.
