Unconventional Civic Engagement
Unconventional civic engagement encompasses behaviors such as boycotting or “buycotting” (deliberately purchasing a company's or a country's products in support of their policies, or to counter a boycott) and consumer activism as well as participating in demonstrations.
- Consumer activism is more common among younger people than older people.
- The same study found that more affluent people are more likely to be involved in consumer activism. And people who are more engaged in other ways (volunteering, for example) are more likely to be involved in this form of unconventional civic engagement.
