Dilemmas in children and young people’s participation: Harry Shier Lecture 15th May

Greenbank Lecture Theatre
University of Central Lancashire
15th May 2008 5.00pm
Since publishing the highly influential ‘Pathways to Participation’ in 2001, Harry Shier has been working with children and young people in Nicaragua. He recently returned to England to undertake a research fellowship at the University of the West of England, in which he compared concepts of children’s participation in Nicaragua and the UK.

In this lecture Harry will explore some of the dilemmas and contradictions in participatory practice with children and young people, drawing on his experience of work in two contrasting settings and on the latest research and thinking on children and young people’s participation.

The lecture is aimed at policy-makers, practitioners and managers in services for children and young people, at students, teachers and researchers with an interest in children and young people’s participation – and at young people who don’t mind sitting through a lecture!

The lecture will be followed by the launch of the Centre for Children and Young People’s Participation and Empowerment. Guests at the lecture are invited to stay for a short drinks reception. Earlier in the day Harry Shier will also lead a workshop for practitioners at the Harris Conference Centre.
