This chapter moves from the broad questions of social background, partisanship, and ideology to look at people’s more personal and specific experience of being a victim of discrimination, a consumer of state services, or a participant in social and political life. Although the causes of these experiences may be interesting in themselves, we are more interested here in their consequences — in the impact that these kinds of experiences may have on people’s attitudes to civil, political, and social rights.

Keywords:   discrimination, social life, political life, civil rights, political rights, social rights, public attitudes, victimisation
