The Commission on Citizenship is an all-Party body whose members are drawn from all walks of public life. In their report they consider what is meant by citizenship and how this applies to the public institutions of our society and the great range of voluntary bodies and independent associations, and above all, to individual citizens of all ages. The Commission sees citizenship as one of the most important concepts of modern political struggle and social development. Their series of recommendations includes incorporating the learning of citizenship within the national education curriculum and the setting up of a major review and codification of the law relating to the legal rights, duties and entitlements of citizens in the UK. Several recommendations refer to community activity and involvement by individuals, statutory and voluntary bodies and employers.

Is there a common ground on which a European citizenship can be constructed? This volume looks at four foundations of citizenship in Europe: the legacy of national identities, current designs and projects for social and political citizenship in Europe, a transitional public space as the basis of an active European Citizenship in Europe, and a transitional collective identity as a symbolic boundary marker for European citizenship. Such options raise the theoretical question of how to conceive citizenship in a transnationalizing world. Since the idea of European citizenship cannot escape the problem of defining who is a European citizen and who is not, the theoretical problem is tackled by defining the collective bonds of European citizens beyond primordial or traditional bonds that have dominated European history.

Zambia, the butterflyshaped, central African country has a population of about 11 million people, and as other SubSaharan African countries, has been trying to democratize since the early 1990s. Clearly, though, the promise of political reform did not fulfill the expectations of the public, and with about 60 percent of the population living below the poverty line, many Zambians are no longer confident that more open political systems can improve their lives. But the problem may not be inherent in the political process itself, and could be found more in the apparent disconnection between people’s needs and the way the country’s affairs are run. It is with respect to these and related issues that this book emphasizes the crucial relationship between education and political participation, and specifically highlights citizenship education as essential for Zambia’s social development. Social development, which should comprise, inter alia, the economic, political, and cultural wellbeing of societies can be enhanced by citizenship education, which focuses on elevating people’s understanding of their rights and responsibilities visà vis government institutions, structures and functions. Indeed, it is the centrality of the political component in people’s lives, especially its relationship with public policy and public programs that should underline the important role of citizenship education. In describing these issues, the book analyzes the role of the media, women’s groups and youth in enhancing the political, educational, and by extension, the economic lives of the Zambian people. The book should interest students and scholars of Zambian (as well as African) education, politics, and social development. It should also be useful for policy makers, institutional managers and both public and parapublic leaders in Zambia and elsewhere in the continent.

During this conference, it became clear that socio-economic problems and problems related to the functioning of democracy are inextricably linked and that consideration needs to ge given to interaction between them if we are to develop coherent solutions. It is in the light of these discussions and of the study of concrete experiments carried out by NGOs, co-operatives and more generally the third sector, that the conference analysed the role of public authorities and civil society and put forward proposals which will be submitted to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

This book makes a forthright case for a shift in policy focus from 'community cohesion' to the broader notion of social cohesion, and is distinctive and innovative in its focus on evaluation. It constitutes an extremely valuable source both for practitioners involved in social cohesion interventions and for researchers and students studying theory-based evaluation and the policy areas highlighted (housing, intergenerational issues, the recession, education, communications, community development).
