Harris, A., and Schoop, K. (2011) Rights, Responsibilities and the Big Society

This article will examine the responses of young people to constitutional change in the UK, with a focus on the emerging issues of rights and responsibilities. The reaction to this change, in the form of the Labour government’s 2009 Rights and Responsibilities:Developing our constitutional framework Green Paper, was largely negative, criticised by young people as a top-down imposition of government-mandated constitutional reform. Thus, the coalition government’s revised approach to the issue in the form of the Big Society philosophy will be considered, and its potential to respond to these concerns assessed.
