Posted: June 15, 2011

The Gerontological Society of America (GSA)’s civic engagement project has released a publication that highlights and advances research on civil engagement in later life.

The Gerontological Society of America (GSA)’s civic engagement project, funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies, has released a capstone publication that highlights and advances research on civic engagement in later life by bringing together “classic” articles previously published in GSA's journals with new articles that review the state-of-the-science to date for a particular area of civic engagement, identify research gaps, and provide direction for future research. The introductory chapter, “The Civic Enterprise: Advancing Civic Engagement Opportunities in Later Life,” is available for free. Find out how to purchase the book online or request a desk copy
