Overview

Active citizenship is much discussed in political and academic circles, yet the party debates and proclaimed policies do not always seem clearly connected with actual practice.

In an effort to remedy this, the contributors to this book consider the possibilities for active citizenship within areas of broad concern in UK politics: young people and politics; parliaments with the people; women and equality; integrating immigrants; multiculturalism; schools; community; social inclusion and poverty; Europe; devolution; nationalisms and Britishness.

In each case the author considers the social and political consequences of the UK becoming a citizen culture, and how this aim could be achieved.
