Intra- and inter-generational perspectives on youth participation in Sweden : A study with young people as research partners

Åkerström, Jeanette LU ; Aytar, Osman and Brunnberg, Elinor (2015) In Children and Society 29(2). p.134-145
Abstract

In this study, intra- and inter-generational perspectives on youth participation are combined and compared. Young people were invited to participate as research partners in an interactive research circle and conducted a survey about participation with other young people as respondents. The discussion concerns how an interactive methodology contributes to the understanding of the concept of participation. It is suggested that political definitions of participation be amended to include having a sense of being recognised in a communicative context, taking responsibility and share with other people one's experiences. This is based on the perspectives of young people.
