Using Chapters 2-4, appraise/analyze the theories discussed and the data presented to explain civic and political participation in various European countries. In particular, analyze the factors that increase participation for women, minorities and migrants.
Next, analyzing the articles and sites enclosed on the US (Module 2…also see links below, all are not necessary, just probably 3-4), compare and contrast the US data/findings with those that you witnessed in Europe. Overall, what are some of the similarities and differences between the two? Also, what do you think of these conclusions? Are there any other reasons/data that the authors may be leaving out that may explain high or low levels of civic participation?
