Book summary / abstract

This text offers a perspicuous, empirically-informed theoretical overview of the prospects for citizenship in the light of its current political context. The authorial team comprises leading names from across the field, offering a cutting edge analysis of the problems and pressures of citizenship in the twenty-first century. The authors focus in particular on the apparent decline of traditional forms of civic engagement, the emergence of new forms of participation and the relationship between citizenship and globalization.

This book is a collaboration between the members of the Centre for Citizenship, Governance and Globalization at the University of Southampton.
