Building: VMP 5 Floor: 2 Room: 2098
This panel brings together papers that look at various forms of political participation in the arena of everyday life (lifestyle politics, political subcultures, etc.) and how these forms of action relate to political participation in other arenas, like the state and the market. It aims to address questions such as whether everyday politics should be understood as an exit from more public political engagements, or whether they may in fact prompt participants to take up a broader engagement. Such questions have so far been addressed through correlations. This panel brings together longitudinal, experimental and qualitative research to assess causal relations.
