Loncle, P., Cocunato, M., Muniglia, V. et Walther, A. (2012). Beyond discourses, practices and realities of youth participation in Europe. Bristol:Policy Press.
In a period when social unrest and youth dissatisfaction has manifested itself through highly public protests, the question of youth participation in democratic societies is at the forefront. This book offers a fresh look at youth participation, examining official and unofficial constructions of participation by young people in a range of sociopolitical domains. It explores the motivations and rationales underlying official attempts to increase participation among young people and offers a critique of those various efforts’ effectiveness. Based on original research data from a significant study, it provides a thorough analysis of an important sector of democratic societies.
