"Civil Societies as Cultural and Developmental Contexts for Civic Identity Formation"
This chapter focuses on the mediating institutions of civil society in the social incorporation of younger citizens. Lay theories about the polity and the tenets of the social contract that bind states and citizens take shape via participation in the routine cultural practices of those institutions. Children's lay theories are refracted through groupways (the social class, caste, racial/ethnic, religious, and gender groups to which they belong). The practices of mediating institutions tend to reinforce dominant narratives and thus stabilize the political system. But civil society also provides free spaces in institutions where citizens can challenge the state and thus contribute to social change.
