An Analysis of The Affecting Factors of Civic Engagement and The Extent



Civic engagement also called civic participation. “It means working to make a difference in the civic life of our communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference. It means promoting the quality of life in a community, through both political and non-political.”According to Oryx Press. The importance of civic engagement goes without saying.

Whether civic engagement can really promot the quality of life,the quality of  civic engagement says. There are some factors may affect civic engagement,such as network size, voluntary association, and trust.A research led by Harris H. Kim claimed that ceteris paribus, network size and voluntary association have a strong causal impact on both outcome variables. Generalized trust is found to be a non-significant factor, however, while particularized trust has a contingent effect.

I think this study may be helpful for us to improve the quality of civic engagement and promote the development of the society and the country.
