Abstract

This is the final report of the PIDOP project which received funding under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project investigated political and civic participation and engagement in nine European countries, Belgium, Czech Republic, England, Germany, Italy, Northern Ireland, Portugal, Sweden and Turkey. The first introductory chapters provide general information and background on both political and civic participation and engagement. The following chapters provide the parameters and results of their investigation with a particular focus on youth, women, minorities and migrants. The project also investigated the macro, demographic, social and psychological factors which influence political and civic participation, examining how the various factors at these four different levels inter-relate, interact and impact on participation. The final chapters provides their recommendations for policy, practice and intervention that can be used to enhance levels of political and civic participation, especially among youth, women, minorities and migrants.
