Title: Young People and Politics: Political Engagement in the Anglo-American Democracies
Date Published: 2013
Author/s: Aaron Martin
What counts as political engagement? Some hold voting to be the gold standard and see online interaction as low cost, low impact, and of low value.
Others are interested in new ways of being political and the emergence of new forms of political action. Young people are at the centre of these debates: what are they up to—if anything—in political life, and is what they’re thinking and doing enough to support democracy into the future?
Aaron Martin entitled Young People and Politics: Political Engagement in the Anglo-American Democracies has some answers, but also raises some some questions.
