Civic Web Project: http://www.civicweb.eu/

This is an FP6 funded project coordinated by the Institute of Education, London exploring youth participation and the internet, specifically:

  • the production of civic sites,
  • the nature and characteristics of the sites,
  • how different social groups of young people use and interpret such sites
  • the relationship between online activity and civic participation ‘offline’.
