How do France and Germany compare in the world of participatory political communities? This volume sets out an impressive historical, theoretical and institutional framework for a comprehensive, comparative and empirical analysis of the forms, patterns, trends and determinants of citizen participation in two of Europe's largest democracies. Written by an international team of political scientists, it starts with an outline of the participatory traditions in both countries before turning to the theoretical foundations of empirical research regarding the role of political participation in modern democracies. It provides an overview of how the perception of political participation has changed over the years and the forms of both conventional participation, particularly with regard to electoral participation, and unconventional participation like protest and other new forms of citizen involvement are analysed in detail. Exploring new approaches in participation research, social participation is seen as not just correlating with political participation, but as a specific form of civic engagement in itself. A broad range of activities, such as electoral and party related participation, political protest, participation in voluntary associations, voting in referenda and taking part in dialogue-orientated participatory activities is examined and the analysis identifies which societal, institutional and cultural factors account for the differences and similarities between the two countries.

Book Description European Consortium for Political Research Press, 2012. Hardcover. Condition: New. The main objective of this volume is to answer the question of how France and Germany can be situated in the world of participatory political communities. It sets the historical, theoretical and institutional framework for the comparative empirical analysis of the forms, patterns, trends and determinants of citizen participation in France and Germany. It starts with an outline of the participatory traditions of the two respective countries. Thereafter, it turns to the theoretical foundations of empirical research regarding the role of political participation in modern democracies, and gives an overview as to how the perception of political participation has changed over the years. Furthermore the forms of conventional participation, particularly with regard to electoral participation, and unconventional participation like protest and other new forms of citizen involvement are analysed in detail. Following the new approaches in participation research, social participation is not only supposed to correlate with political participation, but is a specific form of civic engagement for itself. Therefore this aspect is included in the analyses. The volume does not only discuss national trends and patterns but also local ones because elementary differences can be noticed here, depending amongst others on the level of centralisation of the state structure.
