Abstract

This paper will focus on two issues – those of responsibility, and how state power has gone through a transformation, from, as Simon Gunn has put it, ‘hegemony to governmentality’, and also on the impact of social class on ideas of participation for young people in organisations such as the scouts at the turn of the nineteenth century, and modern day volunteering.
