Democracy and Citizenship in Scandinavia

by

Democracy and Citizenship in Scandinavia Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Major changes in citizenship and democracy have taken place in Scandinavia within the last two decades. Participation in conventional forms of politics has declined markedly, and political parties and trade unions are being questioned. Instead, Scandinavians are turning towards single issue participation and "small democracy" in the workplace or in public sector service institutions. This book deals with the details of these processes and in particular how they have affected political participation, identity, and social polarization.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 281-300) and index.
