Perspectives on Democratic Practice MUP

  • Broad lessons on democratic practice can be drawn from this study
  • Concerns an important, central issue in research on democratic processes - the development of generalised trust and co-operation amongst citizens
  • Fuses theories from two different discourses - literature on social capital and on civic education - to address the argument about whether social capital is created from above by state institutions, or from below, by civil society
  • The project is vital to the study of corruption, crime prevention, social capital and civic education
