In a recent article for the Journal of Youth Studies, Nicola Madge and Peter J Hemming draw on findings from the Youth On Religion study to explore the meaning of non-religious identities. They find that young people display a wide range of non-religious identities with different levels of religiosity, and that being non-religious does not confer an automatic identity. There is also considerable fluidity of religious identity and behaviour, over time and depending on setting.
