|Abstract:||<p>This thesis is concerned with the nature of the political involvement of individuals in local constituency associations. Specifically, this study focuses on the socio-economic and demographic background of local party officers and their motivations. In order to carry out this study, a theoretical framework of the recruitment process is devised, operationalized, and applied to the executive officers of four local constituency associations. The results are analyzed to gain an understanding of why people become involved in politics and how their reasons might affect the organizational behavior of the constituency association.</p>|
