Young people and citizenship 33 Whether or not someone shows ‘respect’ was a criterion used by a number of ‘outsiders’. One, a 22 year-old white male, talked of the good citizen as someone with ‘a bit of respect for his surroundings and…respectful, polite. A bad citizen is someone who ain’t got no respect for anybody…. Smashing this and that up; couldn’t give a toss about where he lives’. Another, a 19 year-old white female, argued that: people who have respect for each other and themselves are good citizens….
Female participants were more likely to refer explicitly to constructive participation in ‘community’ or neighbourhood. Generally, frequent references were made to doing ‘one’s fair share in the community’, sometimes in an organized way, and sometimes more informally such as in ‘looking out for’ and ‘helping’ people in the neighbourhood. One 19 year-old ‘outsider’ white male explicitly emphasised the informal over the more formal: I wouldn’t call a good citizen like the kind who goes out to do charity and trying to raise money.
