Product Description

Review

‘This landmark book reveals how much our understanding of children’s right to participate has grown in the twenty years since the launch of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. It is a basic resource for anyone who believes in children's rights and capacities as citizens.' - Roger A. Hart, City University of New York, USA

The Handbook will be an essential resource for anyone embarking on a child participation initiative as well as for students and scholars in childhood research and children’s rights.' - Martin Woodhead, Open University, UK

'The contributors to this ambitious and extremely accessible volume on children’s participation are to be congratulated for their ground-breaking work...The Handbook is an essential read for scholars, policy-makers, practitioners and children's rights advocates.' - Jo Boyden, University of Oxford, UK

"I found this volume very informative and intellectually stimulating. The phenomena described and the issues debated are indeed familiar. This Handbook is well worth a careful reading, and I recommend it with enthusiasm."—Social Work with Groups
