This seminar is part of the WISERD Civil Society Seminar Series and explores the relationship between the family and civil society.

In much of the literature, the family is positioned firmly outside - even antithetical to - civil society. For while civil society is often presented as the site of voluntary association and democratic engagement, the family is portrayed as the site of oppression and/or the cradle of private self-interest. We argue, though that these representations are overly simple and significantly underestimate the importance of the family for engendering civil society engagement.

Drawing on survey data collected from nearly 1,000 respondents in South Wales, we show the significance of intergenerational relations - between grandparents, parents and their children - for young people's social participation.
