This small symposium comprises a number of leading scholars, policy practitioners and activists who are involved in the study and adoption of ICTs as a means to facilitate the active engagement of young people in democratic governance. It addresses such questions as:

- How can ICTs be best used to facilitate active participation by young people in democratic politics?
- Can ICTs become a part of citizenship education curriculum?
- What kinds of online interaction facilitate effective deliberation between young people?
- What kinds of ICTs are most likely to engage the hard-to-reach groups of disaffected young people?
- How can ICTs enable genuine respect and involvement of young people in national and local decision-making?

Keynote Speakers include: Stephen Coleman, Oxford Internet Institute; Ross Ferguson, Hansard Society;
Raji Hunjan, Carnegie-youth Initiative; Sonia Livingsone, LSE; Brian D. Loader, CIRA, University of Teesside;  
Gustavo Mesch, University of Haifa; Zandria Pauncefort, Institute for Citizenship; Robert Watt, University of Essex

The papers will form the basis of a proposed publication (possibly as a contribution to the Routledge series edited by Brian D. Loader). Selected authors may also be invited to submit a copy of their paper to the journal Information, Communication & Society ( for consideration.

The deadline for receipt of the abstracts is 22 July 2005. Abstracts, not exceeding 300 words, must be sent electronically to Brian D. Loader at [email protected]. The Deadline for receipt of full papers (not exceeding 7,000 words and with an abstract of up to 300 words) is 19 September 2005.
