Re-energizing Citizenship examines the dual character of civil society. The malaise in civil society is seen as a key to understanding anti-social behaviour, the weaknesses of regeneration schemes and the divisions and antagonisms of our societies. Yet the resources and skills hidden away in civil society, if they could be unlocked, are seen as the key to effective intervention. The book provides a critical examination of attempts to re-energize citizenship in a range of contexts and offers insights into what works.
