The Child and Youth Participation Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Children’s Research Network of Ireland and Northern Ireland is proposing to write a book on child and youth participation in the Irish context. The purpose of the book is to share case studies and practical examples / accounts of participatory research and involvement with children and young people (0-24 years), as well as studies of children’s and young people’s social / political participation. A theoretical piece around child participation will also be addressed, as it remains a very under-developed aspect within the current literature.

The call is now closed - for information on the book, please contact the new Chair of the CRN Child and Youth Participation Group, Dr Susan O'Donnell on
