Abstract

Young people are much less likely to vote in elections that older generations, with the age gap in voting much higher in the UK than in other advanced democracies. Daniela F Melo and Daniel Stockemer present findings from the UK, Germany and France that show young people are more likely than older people to be engaged in other forms of participation, such as political demonstrations.
