Abstract [en]

This article examines the citizens’ political participation at local level in two Swedish city-regions. Theories of political participation claim that citizens’ resources, motivation and networks are crucial for political activism. Other theories state that the territorial context and political institutions matter as well. This indirect effect by the context is expected to be gendered, i.e. the effect is assumed to be different for women and men. The analysis is based on survey data for 3,200 citizens in two Swedish city-regions. The effect of the territorial context is investigated on several different forms of political participation, while controlling for individual factors and political institutions. The gendered effect is investigated by interaction variables. The result is that the territorial context do have a significant effect on most form of political participation and this effect is gendered. Individual factors have significant effects as expected while political institutions are unimportant.
