Tuning in to democracy: Challenges of young people’s participation and civic education

SPEECH DELIVERED:
27 Marzo 2007
Washington, DC, USA
 |   | 

How does the socialisation of people into becoming voters work?

What makes young people become habitual voters? It is tempting to assume that those who do not vote may participate in other ways - but we don’t know whether this is true. Sometimes those who engage in other kinds of participatory activity are also those who vote.
