The child as 'Democratic citizen' – challenging the 'Participation gap'.

Nolan, A. (2010) 'The child as 'Democratic citizen' – challenging the 'Participation gap'.', Public law. (4). pp. 767-782.


Considers the position of children as democratic citizens, looking at children's participation in the democratic decision-making process. Explains arguments on why political participation matters in terms of the child as a citizen and their participation in democratic politics and political processes. Examines children's participation rights in the context of the Convention on the Rights of the Child 1989 art.12, which may serve to aid children in involving themselves in the democratic decision-making process. Suggests ways to improve children's participation in the future.
