Professor Ariadne Vromen (University of Sydney)
How do young people participate in politics? What does their participation tell us about the future of politics?
Join us for a presentation by Professor Ariadne Vromen (University of Sydney), a leading expert on youth politics and political engagement. Using original data collected for The Civic network project in Australia, UK and USA, this talk shows that young people participate in politics, but their participation mostly now occurs online and reflects the rise of engaged citizenship norms
