Brannan, Tessa, John, Peter and Stoker, Gerry (2006) Re-energizing citizenship: strategies for civil renewal, Basingstoke, UK, Palgrave Macmillan, 232pp.

Record type: Book


Re-energizing Citizenship provides a critical examination of attempts to re-invigorate citizenship in a range of contexts and offers insights into what works.

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.
