This module aims to develop in students a critical but appreciative awareness of the role of culture in framing children and young people’s lives and their participation. It engages students in exploring the role of international and national policies, agencies and practices in shaping childhood. By exploring the process of globalisation and comparing and contrasting the experiences of children internationally it asks students to question the extent to which understandings of child participation are universal. The module encourages students to consider the implications of global perspectives on children’s participation for developing their own practice.
