Countries in the world differ in their levels and the types of political participation. Western democracies offer their citizens a whole variety of opportunities to express their preferences to political power holders, ranging from electoral political participation like voting, party or association membership, contacting political actors etc. to non-electoral participation, most often protest behavior, such as demonstrating, petitioning, striking, boycotting but also more radical activities. In less advanced democracies and democratizing countries, some types of political participation might be less effective (e.g. voting) or risky (e.g. protesting), so citizens tend to embark in the action that best fits the political context. We will analyze the intended and unintended ways in which contemporary developments affect the degree, forms and contents of political (non-)participation in the different contexts. Attention will be paid to both electoral political participation (voting), as well as non-electoral political participation (protest), radicalization and extremism.
