Law student George Kamanda discusses the importance of political engagement in published book

In his book Citizenship Reimagined: The Case for Responsible Whole Citizenry in Sierra Leone, Case Western Reserve University School of Law student George Kamanda argues for the necessity of civic education and youth engagement in order to create a society centered around “responsible, whole citizenship.” 

Born in Sierra Leone, Kamanda drew from his experience witnessing a society of skeptical, apathetic citizens as the result of a corrupt government. He promotes the implementation of community-, school- and media-based initiatives in order to educate and empower individuals to recognize the impact they hold as citizens. 

Kamanda intends for his book to serve as supplementary reading material for secondary school and university students in Sierra Leone. Citizen Reimagined is available for purchase on Amazon.
