Abstract

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) played a key role in constructing children and young people as autonomous individuals and rights holders. The dominance of human-rights in international policy discourses and the subsequent popularity of rights-based approaches in governance and development have fostered a culture of “participation”, which has influenced the ways adults work with children and young people in policy making and the delivery of services concerning them (McNamara, 2011), as well as their participation in research (Bradbury-Jones & Taylor, 2013).
