Young Citizens : Young People's Involvement in Politics and Decision Making Hardback
by Eldin Fahmy
Recent years have witnessed growing concerns about the disengagement of young people from conventional politics both in Britain and internationally.
Their non-participation is often viewed as reflecting both a deeper political alienation and 'apathy' amongst young people, and a wider political malaise across western societies.
Based upon a wide range of UK and European survey sources, together with qualitative and policy-focused analyses, this volume explores the attitudes of young people to politics and government in Britain and assesses the prospects for re-engaging young people with the formal political process. Young Citizens will be a valuable reference for academics, researchers, policy makers and practitioners in the fields of sociology, social policy, citizenship studies and youth studies.
