'Social Capital and Political Participation: The Case of Youth Engagement in Britain'.
Political participation among the youth has recently attracted much attention. Theoretical literatures on political participation suggest that individual-level variables such as education and employment are the main reason for engagement in politics. However, Fawzia argues that collective-level variables of social capital such as volunteering, personal relationships, trust and social media are more likely to affect youth’s participation. Fawzia examines the role that social capital plays in shaping political participation in Britain. Her methodology is based on interviewing 40 young persons from the City of York to show the impact of social capital for a more active and politically engaged young people.
