Re-energizing citizenship : strategies for civil renewal

edited by Tessa Brannan, Peter John and Gerry Stoker

Re-energizing Citizenship provides a critical examination of attempts to re-invigorate citizenship in a range of contexts and offers insights into what works. In light of the challenges and complexities of our societies the tone is not celebratory nor evangelical. It is substantially empirical and hard-nosed in that it asks what prospects there are for re-engaging civil society to tackle the tough issues of youth offending, neighbourhood safety, antisocial behaviour, economic regeneration and conflict between civic groups. The malaise in civil society is seen as a key to understanding antisocial behaviour, the weaknesses of regeneration schemes and the divisions and antagonisms of our societies. Yet the resources and skills hidden away in civil society, if they could be unlocked, are seen as the key to effective intervention. The book concludes that citizens can be re-engaged providing the incentive structures and broader framing of the policy are put together in an effective manner.
