The internet Generation:
Engaged Citizens or Political Dropouts?
Open guest lecture followed by discussion
1400-1630. Thursday 30. September
Undervisningsrom 2, Georg Sverdrups Hus (Universitetsbiblioteket)
Milner's book looks at the United States, Canada, Scandinavia, and the European Union to probe the decline of youth voting and attentiveness to politics, and to draw lessons about institutions that could break down the wall between political life and “real” life that underlies political abstention among the Internet Generation. Civic Education is the key to instill habits of attentiveness to public affairs, especially among potential political dropouts. He looks at issues and the stance of political parties on them, he looks to the classroom, including visits, simulations, and innovative use of media, old and new.
