Participation has become a rallying cry for those committed to respecting children and young people as social actors in their own right, as a part of communities and societies. Yet children and young people's participation has faced considerable challenges in realizing the rhetoric, with concerns being raised that too much emphasis has been placed on the process of participation and too little emphasis on its broader aim.

This book brings together theories, ideas, insights and experiences of practitioners and researchers from Brazil, India, South Africa and the UK on the theme of children and young people's involvement in public action. It explores the potential of children and young people's participation to be transformative and to challenge social and cultural structures that reproduce inequality and oppression. This book will be particularly appealing to those interested in children's rights, childhood and youth studies, and development studies.
