Mycock, Andrew and Tonge, Jonathan (2011) A Big Idea for the Big Society? The Advent of National Citizen Service. The Political Quarterly, 82 (1). pp. 56-66. ISSN 0032-3179Metadata only available from this repository.
The proposed introduction of National Citizen Service (NCS) by the Conservative party survived the negotiations with the Liberal Democrats and forms part of the coalition's policy agenda. The idea forms part of the concern of Cameronian Conservatives to create a big society, based primarily upon volunteering and civil engagement. Drawing upon comparisons with state and private sector-led models of citizen volunteering in Germany and the United States, this article explores the evolving rationale for the introduction of NCS and evaluates the issues and pitfalls which may arise.
