This subject examines two related beliefs: (i) children and young people are citizens; and (ii) the meaning of citizenship depends on the age of the citizen. It introduces a major debate around citizenship between those who regard citizenship as conferring individual rights and those who regard citizenship as a political practice of participation that confers responsibilities to society as a whole. The subject will use research-based case studies from diverse contexts (e.g. local government, medicine, education and law) to examine the contemporary enactment of different models of citizenship and the implications for children's and youth's well-being. There will be a focus on how geography, gender, race and class affect citizenship - specifically, how they promote or limit participation by children and youth in social institutions and therefore promote or limit their well-being.
