The sociologist Norbert Elias argued that the ability to take responsibility is part of a 'civilizing process'. Neoliberal governments appear to agree with this, because they have 'responsibilised' their citizens in many domains. Pellandini-Simányi and Conte explain that the concept of responsibilisation refers to the assigning of responsibility to citizens and the social-cultural factors that persuade citizens to embrace those responsibilities.
