Micro-level effects of political participation

Micro-level effects of political participation
Micro-level effects of political participation
Varieties of political participation have different micro-effects or biographical consequences for those engaging in political action. Gender, class, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and other markers of difference matter for involvement in political participation and thus also for its consequences. This means that an intersectional perspective is needed to understand the micro-effects or biographical consequences of political participation. In addition, it is important to be mindful to distinguish effects from correlations. We begin this chapter by discussing the concept of “biographical consequences”. We then apply it to different forms of political participation. This includes online activism and its consequences. Our chapter considers burnout as well as the sustainability of political participation in the life-course. We close with identifying gaps and needs for further research.

Abstract

Varieties of political participation have different micro-effects or biographical consequences for those engaging in political action. Gender, class, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and other markers of difference matter for involvement in political participation and thus also for its consequences. This means that an intersectional perspective is needed to understand the micro-effects or biographical consequences of political participation. In addition, it is important to be mindful to distinguish effects from correlations. We begin this chapter by discussing the concept of “biographical consequences”. We then apply it to different forms of political participation. This includes online activism and its consequences. Our chapter considers burnout as well as the sustainability of political participation in the life-course. We close with identifying gaps and needs for further research.
