The Promotion of Children's and Adolescents' Social Participation in Italy and Scotland
Rossi, Elisa; Baraldi, Claudio
Children & Society, v23 n1 p16-28 Jan 2009
This article presents the theoretical framework, methodology and the main results of a comparative research on the promotion of children's social participation in Italy and Scotland, which was based on politicians', managers' and practitioners' representations. Promotion of participation here is considered a form of social intervention in which adults construct and treat children as citizens entitled to be involved in decision-making processes, due to their competence in self-expression and making choices. The study revealed a coexistence of different images of childhood and social intervention, as well as some interesting differences and similarities between the two socio-cultural contexts.
