Remixing Citizenship: Democracy and Young People’s Use of the Internet
Author: Professor Stephen Coleman
Remixing Citizenship starts from the position that it is not young people that are disconnected from formal politics, but political institutions that are disconnected from young people.
The report sets a new agenda for debating the relationship between young people, the Internet and democracy. It argues that the nature of citizenship is changing – there is a generation moving to newer, more creative forms of participation and that new forms of communication are key to this. Young people are now able to sample and remix citizenship, picking out the desired elements and discarding those that lack relevance. Remixing Citizenship refers to the idea of adding one’s own innovation to the concept of citizenship.
