This paper will illustrate from a critical point of view the most recent and relevant theories and models about the relationship between the development of historical consciousness and political socialisation. It is particularly concerned with aspects of the development of a European identity, and in the relationship of this with national identity. The problem is approached by considering findings of some recent empirical and comparative research ('Youth and History') and other inquiries on the development of historical consciousness.
