Children's Participation: Control and Self-Realisation in British Late Modernity.
Prout, Alan
Children & Society, v14 n4 p304-15 Sep 2000
Examines children's participation in public life in relation to the tension between control and self-realization found in late modernity. Argues that social tension is created through the conflict between recognition of children as persons in their own right and public policy marked by intensification of control of children creating a view of children as human capital.
