I have experiences with the topic of participation in the field of residential and foster care. There my interest was/is to reconstruct the perspective of children: in which topics and in which ways do they like to participate. What does it mean, when only grown-ups decide, in which situations children may participate. What means participation? On the other hand which meanings have structures, forms and rights for this topic.

I was engaged in the EU-Project quality4children for several years. In this project we developed together with children and professionals guidelines to realize children’s rights.
