A plain English guide to citizenship terms

This A-Z guide to citizenship terms provides you with helpful explanations of commonly used terms in politics, law and society. This publication aims to provide an introduction to an area that is not always agreed upon by everyone: the realm of ‘active citizenship’. Unlike the definitions in previous NALA plain English guides, which were accepted as standard, some of the definitions in this guide are contested. The very fact that this is the case raises a very important aspect of citizenship and citizenship education and that is the built-in notion of appreciating difference between ourselves and other ‘citizens’.
