The notion of good citizenship is a neglected concept within the theoretical literature and in empirical investigations. The field of citizenship studies is now vast and multidisciplinary yet there has not been a specific study aimed solely at uncovering what it means to be a good citizen.

The methodology is concerned with examining the characteristics of good citizenship from an expert point of view using a modified Delphi study. Two methods of data collection—semi-structured interviews and focus groups—were used to research the lay perspectives on what it means to be a good citizen. [Continues.]
