(p.1) Introduction
Active Citizenship

Andrew Lockyer

Edinburgh University Press

This book explores civic republicanism and citizenship, active citizenship and Britain's Labour Party, and the sharing of power between the people of Scotland, the legislators and the Scottish Executive. It also discusses the changing balance of power since World War II between elites and citizens in respect, particularly, of the health professions; gender equality and democracy; what active citizenship can achieve for schools and through schools; the meaning of multiculturalism and its bearing on citizenship education in schools and naturalisation policy; immigration and naturalisation; democratic citizenship and lifelong active learning; the role of active citizenship in European and international contexts; the making of young people into active citizens; active citizenship and sharing of power in Scotland, focusing on the need to go beyond devolution; and Britain as a multinational and multicultural state.

Keywords:   active citizenship, Labour Party, Britain, young people, Scotland, multiculturalism, civic republicanism, gender equality, democracy, immigration
