B29: Active Citizenship

2nd February 2005.

This CLES Bulletin looks at active citizenship in the UK. There has been a decline in traditional democratic engagement in recent times, however other forms of citizenship are being displayed in society, such as formal and informal volunteering. Encouraging an increasing number of people to take part in society more widely is a growing agenda within government and this bulletin looks at the ways the linkages between civic participation and democratic participation can be made.
