Building a new politics?

(p.205) 8 Building a new politics?
New Paradigms in Public Policy

Gerry Stoker

British Academy

This chapter first examines the evidence that political alienation and disengagement is not evenly spread among all sections of British society, and indeed appears to be concentrating among some of the most disadvantaged in society. It then addresses the following question: Does it matter that some citizens are alienated from politics? The final section considers the issue of how to design solutions, and contrasts the approach of political engineers with that of democratic designers. It asks what further work social scientists might contribute to understanding and exploring the challenge of building a new politics.

Keywords:   British society, political alienation, disengagement, citizens, political participation
