Issue 55.2 | Citizenship for Change
Volume 55 Issue 2 | Citizenship for Change
Produced in partnership with Hivos and following the Arab Spring and the Occupy movements, this issue explores the recent mobilizations and citizens' participation movements, with a particular focus on digital natives, intergenerational issues in citizenship and movements from the global South.
'Citizenship for change' was jointly presented by the SID Netherland Chapter and Hivos on the occasion of the SID NL Chapter lecture 'Rethinking the state in the context of financial, environmental and social chaos' delivered by Hilary Wainwright. Other launch events were organized in Buenos Aires by the SID Buenos Aires Chapter, in Washington by the SID Washington Chapter and in Nairobi by the SID secretariat.
Additional articles and interviews on the subject of citizenship, governance, new media, social movements and the role of civil society have been featured on DevelopmentPLUS, the online component of the journal on the SID Forum.
