About this product
- DescriptionDespite rising levels of education and mounting calls for increased democratic participation, recent years have seen a significant decline in voter turut in many countries and the erosion of the sense of civic duty that brought earlier generations to the polls. Henry Milner looks at the United States, Canada, Britain, Scandinavia, and the European Union to probe the decline of youth voting and attentiveness to politics, drawing lessons from observations of institutions, which could break down the wall between political life and real life that underlies political abstention among the Internet generation. Finding civic education the key to instilling habits of attentiveness to public affairs, especially among potential political dropouts, Milner sets out a series of ways to bring the issues-and the political parties' stance on them-to the classroom, including visits, simulations, and invative use of media, old and new.
- Author BiographyHENRY MILNER is a political scientist at the University of Montreal in Canada and Umea University in Sweden, and co-editor of Inroads, a Canadian journal of policy and opinion.
