Based on the empirical results of a survey conducted in the summer of 1998 in Dubrava, an eastern suburb (part) of Zagreb, the paper interprets some dimensions of the social integration of youth. In this sense, it interprets the general relationships among groups of youth, the relationship to social institutions for youth and the wishes and perspectives of youth. The results of the study on the above-mentioned dimensions show that young people are permissive, but not also initiative in their intergroup relationships, that representatives of some groups are not emphasised as "intolerable'', that young people participate in rituals and contacts adapted to their age and life style, including also open conflicts (fights) among themselves, that they relatively very rarely ask for help from institutions in their place of residence, and that the attitudes of the respondents in regard to the future have mainly a cosmopolitan character. The study confirmed the reactions of youth to the different dimensions of the study differed with regard to age (the groups of 15-year olds from the 18-year olds) and with regard to sex, but not in regard to the other variables.
