Questioning the boundary between participation and non-participation

Developing a concept of participation starting from:

  • What young people do in and/or in relation to the public?
  • What it means to them?
  • How these practices are recognised, ignored or facilitated by policy, authorities and educational practice?

Participation defined “as biographical self-determination in the public and/or through the use of public institutions … potentially all (and different styles of) actions of individuals carried out in and/or addressing the public.”
