About this book

In this book, the authors explore the apparent decline in youth civic engagement through research studies conducted in seven societies/nations with varied experiences with democracy.  This work is framed within a youth civic engagement model. Each subsequent chapter presents the findings for each nation, along with contextual and historical discussions of citizenship education. This book explores the findings in Canada, England, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, and Mexico.

Reviews

“In an era when polemic often triumphs over evidence in the public square, Broom and colleagues present the findings of an ambitious international initiative to understand the current state of youth civic engagement.  Building on a shared conceptual frame yielding intriguing comparative data, researchers from seven states--Canada, England, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan and Mexico--generate fresh insights and challenging questions about how and why our younger fellow citizens engage in the polis.” (Michael Johanek, Senior Fellow, Graduate School of Education and Director, Mid-Career Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership, University of Pennsylvania, USA)
