About this item

In what ways are the meaning and practice of politics changing? Why might so many people feel dissatisfied and disaffected with electoral politics? What approaches do political activists use to raise issues and mobilize people for action? What role do the internet and social media play in contemporary citizenship and activism? This truly interdisciplinary book offers answers to all of these questions. Bringing together international academics, political activists, and campaigners, it explores the meaning of politics and citizenship in contemporary society and the current forms of political (dis)engagement. This book offers a rare dialogue between analysts and activists and will be especially valuable to academics and students across the social sciences, in particular sociology and political science.
