Civic political culture, participatory governance and political development: an X-ray of its interdependent context
AbstractThis study x-rayed the significance of civic political culture on participatory governance and its potentialities on political development. It adopted theoretical postulations in analyzing the subject matter. The analytical model showed a diagrammatic presentation of the relationship among participant culture features, elements of participatory governance and its effects on political development. Literatures were largely drawn from secondary sources. The content(s) of data gathered were appropriately analysed. This study, therefore, concluded that civic political culture has direct significance on participatory governance: it makes the creation of law and social order to be people-driven; and enhances citizens’ involvement in the political self-determination.
