`This collection...is outstanding. It has an excellent grasp of the field and students in fields of both social studies of childhood and children's rights and citizenship will gain a lot from reading and studying the book' - Jens Qvortrup, Professor of Sociology, University of Trondheim
`Anyone who is concerned with citizenship should grapple with the thesis in this collection. This stimulating book will provoke discussion of what is involved in recognising that children are as much part of our society as adults' - Professor Michael Freeman, Editor of International Journal of Children's Rights
Children and Citizenship offers a contemporary and critical approach to notions of children's citizenship. Drawing on different disciplinary perspectives and including contributions by leading scholars in the field, this book makes explicit connections between theoretical approaches, representations of childhood, the experiences of children themselves, legal instruments, policies and their implementation. Each chapter presents complex issues in an accessible way, helping readers to understand notions of children's citizenship that are embedded in contemporary debates.
Children and Citizenship is an important and timely book and will be invaluable for undergraduate and postgraduate students across a wide number of disciplines, including health, social work, childhood studies, youth studies, education, law and social policy, together with policy-makers and practitioners in allied areas.
