Abstract:

ABSTRACT: 

This article explores the civic republican conception of citizenship underlying the Labour government's programme of civil renewal and the introduction of education for democratic citizenship. It considers the importance of the cultivation of civic virtue through political participation for such developments and it reviews the research into how service learning linked to character education can lead to the civic virtue of duty or social responsibility.

Keywords: character; citizenship education; civic republicanism; civic virtue; civil renewal; political participation; service learning
