    The renewed interest in the importance of active citizenship and
    volunteering in higher education is reflective of concerns about democratic
    participation, declining social capital and community cohesion (Power
    Inquiry 2006; Sloam 2007). Citizenship education (particularly in
    secondary schools) has been viewed by some as a panacea for declining
    levels of political participation, social delinquency and the dilution of a
    common civic identity (see Blunkett 2001: 41–2). The topicality of
    embedding citizenship across universities and their course curricula is also
    tied to a range of pedagogic and functional issues, most notably teaching
    quality assurance, student personal development, community participation
    and employability.
