Civic Culture, Community and Citizen Participation in Contrasting Neighbourhoods.
Docherty, Iain; Goodlad, Robina; Paddison, Ronan
Urban Studies, v38 n12 p2225-50 Nov 2001
Collected data from four urban neighborhoods to explore whether citizen participation in urban governance was fostered by civic culture and local political institutions. Although citizen participation was least likely to occur in poor neighborhoods demonstrating lower educational attainment levels, such factors could be mitigated by political mobilization and approaches to urban governance adopted by local institutions (including citizen participation).
