CALL FOR CHAPTERS: DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JUNE 9TH, 2017

CONTEMPORARY APPROACHES TO POLITICAL PARTICIPATION

 

Description

For a sound and working democratic system, citizen engagement in politics is of utmost importance. Especially in today’s world where international politics are interrupted by populist political elites and authoritarian governments, civic engagement functions as an essential element of check and balance mechanism in the overall political system. As the opportunities for political participation increase, participation means and channels diversify every day.

In this context, political participation research in modern world is very promising in terms of understanding contemporary debates and key concepts of political participation. In order to contribute to the scholarship on political participation with up to date studies, Political Communication Institute will publish edited volume on the issue in 2017. The volume will be peer-reviewed and English in full. We welcome papers focusing on various aspects of the phenomenon of political participation and related subjects.
