About this book

Focusing on children's citizenship, participation and rights, this edited collection draws on the work of a number of leading scholars in the sociology of childhood. The contributors explore a range of themes including: tensions between pragmatism and grand theory; revisiting agency/structure debates in the light of children; the challenging of binary thought prevalent in studies around 'generations' and other aspects of sociology; the manifestation of power in time and space; the application of theories into the 'real' world through NGOs, practitioners, policy makers, politicians and empirical research.

The collection will be of interest to students and scholars across a range of disciplines including childhood studies, sociology, politics and social policy, as well as policy makers and practitioners interested in the citizenship, rights and participation of children.

Reviews

“This volume presents a rich and stimulating conversation about the theoretical underpinnings of children’s participatory citizenship. Leading sociologists in childhood studies gather to press the discussion to new levels of complexity and sophistication. The result is a fresh, experimental, and rewarding reflection on children’s lived agency and its relations to power, marginalization, globalization, rights, interdependency, and much else. (John Wall, Rutgers University, USA)
