This chapter illuminates the importance of studying informal, as well as state-sponsored, forms of democratic participation. It addresses the problems of individuation and the decoupling of states from citizens. It argues that governance strategies designed to enhance social capital have resulted in a growing division between what he terms ‘expert citizens’ and ‘everyday makers’.
