An article written by Professor Jon Tonge has won the ‘Children’s Identities and Citizenship in Europe Association’ (CiCEA) award.
A Big Idea for the Big Society – The Advent of National Citizen Service, examines different models of National Citizen Service (NCS) where citizens and communities cohere through voluntarism and participation and assesses David Cameron’s Big Society against it.
The article, published in the journal, Political Quarterly and co-authored with Andy Mycock at Huddersfield University can be accessed here.
CiCea is an Erasmus Academic Network, supported by the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme. The association is an influential network of about 100 higher education institutions from 30 countries in Europe which explores ways in which children and young people can learn about citizenship in the European context and how they construct their identities.
