We made it into print

We were really excited to receive the first hard copies of the book we have been working on with UCLAN Centre for Participation directors today. It's bean a really interesting process pulling together a wide range of ideas from across the globe to think about the role of children's participation - here's the blurb:

Participation, Citizenship and Intergenerational Relations in Children and Young People's Lives
Children and Adults in Conversation, Edited by Joanne Westwood, Cath Larkins, Dan Moxon,Yasmin Perry and Nigel Thomas is available now from Palgrave- Macmillan



In 2012, over 200 academics who are active in international childhood and youth research gathered together alongside young people for a unique ICYRNet conference where they debated and discussed participatory approaches. Participation, Citizenship and Intergenerational Relations in Children and Young People's Lives continues the dialogue between young people and adults that started then. This edited collection draws together work from six countries about participatory research and intergenerational relations. Adopting participatory techniques, the editors worked with children and young people to co–author three chapters that each reflect young people's interpretations of three chapters written by adults. This provides a unique insight into how children and young people view research which is about them as well as highlighting their perspectives on research which resonates with their own life experiences. The book includes reference to a wealth of supplementary visual and audio materials which are available on the conference website at www.dvigc.com.
