Abstract

The main audience for this guide is local councils. The advice is aimed at departments, units or individual o"cers concerned with promoting democratic engagement, and is also highly relevant to elected members. The main research aim was to identify areas where guidance would be useful to local authorities, and to report these – with suitable case study illustrations – in good practice guidance. The research set out to address the following questions: • What is motivating local authorities to develop civic education activities beyond schools, and what forms of civic education are they providing? • Who is providing these activities, ether internally within councils, or in collaboration with other actors? • What makes for successful civic education and how is success being defined and measured? • What are the barriers that local authorities face in delivering e!ective civic education? How should good practice be disseminated?
