Exploring Youth Civic Engagement and Disengagement in British Columbia, Canada
Broom, Catherine A.
Journal of International Social Studies, v6 n1 p4-22 2016
This paper reports upon the findings of a research study conducted with British Columbian university youth in Canada, investigating youth beliefs about, and actions towards, civic life and the connections between these factors and youths' personal conditions and surrounding contexts. The findings illustrate the complexity of connections between youth civic views and behavior. Paying more attention to the dynamic interaction between individuals and their lived experiences and considering citizenship education curricula and teaching practices in relation to this complexity may help to improve citizenship education.
