Part of the Routledge Research in Education series
Traditionally, children have been considered from a primarily developmental perspective, in need of education in order to achieve autonomy, growth, and eventually adulthood.
Childhood studies have recently underlined an alternate way to look at children, starting from the consideration that children are competent social actors and can actively participate in social life.
However, there has been relatively little attention paid to the ways in which adults can actively empower children's agency and participation.
This book aims to highlight this important aspect, explaining the position of adults as facilitators and mediators in the process of constructing childhood.
