Scholars of classical philosophy and participatory democracy suggest that participation in political activities is indeed a fundamental tenet of individual wellbeing. Weil die räumliche Nähe intensivere Kontakte mit Politikern ermöglicht, mehr Möglichkeiten der Beteiligung bietet und eine größere Vertrautheit mit dem politischen Prozess erlaubt, trägt die lokale Ebene dazu bei, die Legitimität des politischen Systems zu stärken und das Vertrauen in die Demokratie zu fördern. Furthermore, increasing long-term interest rates as an indicator of government future debt sustainability appear to be detrimental for social capital development. We give special attention to the role of political efficacy in this relationship.
Looking beyond the traditional single focus on participation or on organizations in isolation, the book innovatively examines the empirical link that can be established between actual developments in democratic participations and the organizational framework in European countries. Children from ethnic minorities and lower socioeconomic residence areas show relatively less developed political orientations, and they do not improve as much over the school year as other children. Economic and political developments in Greece have been at the forefront of the international mass media coverage of the European financial and economic crises. The conventional activist —citizens as active members engaged in voluntary associations and collective decision-making — seems to be replaced by passive supporters and donors or ephemeral or episodic democratic participators.

The results suggest that economic decline — particularly increasing unemployment — is associated with a decline in social capital, especially in southern European countries. Relying on a new method for conceptualizing forms and modes of participation we show that a large variety of creative, expressive, individualized, and digitally enabled forms of participation can be classified as parts of the repertoire of political participation. However, the picture may not be so bleak. Addressing Democratic and Citizenship Deficits: Lessons from Civil Society?. The question then arises whether there is a similar, smaller or even opposite bias in the ideological and political composition of professionalized forms of political participation.

Deliberative Democratic Theory and Practice as a Challenge to Individualized Collective Action? Our panel study of more than 700 children in their first year of primary school shows that these young children already exhibit consistent, structured political orientations. The question is not whether citizens should be involved in democratic decision-making processes, but how much engagement and participation is required for a vibrant democracy. Aber sie treffen nicht zu. A widespread consensus has emerged that a revival of patterns of civic engagement and citizenship will compensate for the assumed deficiencies of modern democracies. The analysis pinpoints civic pathogenies that require immediate action.
Despite the ongoing proliferation of the modes of participation marginalized and underprivileged social groups constantly participate less than other groups. This expansion includes activities as diverse as voting, signing petitions, blogging, tweeting, demonstrating, boycotting products, blocking traffic, joining flash mobs, attending meetings, throwing seed bombs, or donating money. If so, indirect political action through professionalized organizations could counterbalance the overrepresentation of leftwing and extremist citizens that we find in more direct forms of political action. Results from an innovative survey with a representative sample of the German population demonstrate that old and new forms are systematically integrated into a multi-dimensional taxonomy covering 1 voting, 2 digitally networked participation, 3 institutionalized participation, 4 protest, 5 civic participation, and 6 consumerist participation. Despite the growing interest in new forms of citizen engagement in politics, there is virtually no systematic research investigating what these new and emerging forms of engagement look like, how prevalent they are in various societies, and how they fit within the broader structure of well-known participatory acts conceptually and empirically.

In each analysis, however, particular focus is placed on the importance of the contextual setting. Conclusions: How Democratic is Professionalized and Individualized Political Action? Wenn wir die Aufmerksamkeit jedoch auf die Determinanten von politischem Interesse richten, wird klar, dass soziodemographische Faktoren und soziale Kontakte für die Erklärung von politischer Untätigkeit indirekt eine wichtige Rolle spielen. Leftwing citizens participate more than rightwing citizens although rightwing citizens are more likely to vote during elections. Irrespective of the type of association, members in voluntary associations in 19 European democracies show higher levels of satisfaction with democracy and higher levels of political engagement than nonmembers.
