The article is focused on different conceptualisations of the notion of citizenship in Italy and in the UK as well as it looks at the practice and significance of active citizenship for activists involved in different Social NGOs. In discussing the Italian case, we contrast different styles of development of active citizenship (top down and bottom up) by taking into account processes promoted by public institutions as well as emerging from the civil society. In addressing the British case, we overview the policy reforms regarding citizenship put forward first of all under the New Right government of Thatcher and subsequently by looking at the reframing provided by New Labours after the election of Tony Blair in 1997. The second part of the article focuses on the presentation of the results of a number of interviews conducted with NGOs’ activists aiming at providing a reflection upon the interlink between political participation and europeanisation.
Keywords: Active Citizenship; Political Participation; European Identity; Europeanisation; Discourse Analysis.
