Title Do defining moments leave their mark for life? : the case of Sweden
Author(s) Broomé, Per ; Carlson, Benny ; Holmberg, Ingvar ; Schewe, Charles
Date 2011
English abstract
According to the theory of “defining moments” dramatic events such as the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963 and the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001 make a deep impression especially on the minds of young people and eventually lead to the formation of cohorts bound by common values. Knowledge of such cohorts can be used for many purposes, such as marketing, staff management or political campaigns. This paper analyses the impact of dramatic events on people in different age groups in Sweden through a survey answered by nearly a thousand people – of which 40 percent are foreign-born – from the city of Malmö.
