Making European Citizens: Civic Inclusion in a Transnational Context

Jo Shaw (Editor), Richard Bellamy (Editor), Dario Castiglione (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology

Abstract

Making European Citizens examines the forms of transnational citizenship developing in Europe. Previous discussions have focused on the construction of a European identity and the granting of common European rights, but rarely explore whether citizens have developed the capacity for self-rule. Active citizenship involves more than simply voting. Citizens must be able to organize socially and politically as well. Achieving such mobilization at a transnational level may involve new democratic techniques and skills. The volume explores how far European citizens have acquired the requisite methods and qualities.
