people have little involvement or say in most organisations, policies, institutions, processes and political structures that affect their lives. As we have noted, there has been an enormous increase in interest in public and other participation in recent years. Yet it remains far from a routine reality. Much of the discussion about it is simplistic and superficial – as though progressing participation is only a matter of deciding to do it. The fact that involvement is often so limited should serve as a warning that this is generally far from the case. Much more than

community engagement ( Chapter 7 ). Power and empowerment Empowerment practice enables people to gain influence and control over their lives, particularly with social institutions. When thinking about participation it is crucial to think about empowerment, and hence power (see Chapter 2 ), including how and where it impacts on people and how it impacts on some people more than others.

Revisiting Youth and Inequalities in Europe

Young people’s participation is an urgent policy and practice concern, across countries and context. This book showcases original research evidence and analysis to consider how, under what conditions and for what purposes young people participate in different parts of Europe.

Focusing on the interplay between the concepts of youth, inequality and participation, this book explores how structural changes, including economic austerity, neoliberal policies and new patterns of migration, affect the conditions of young people’s participation and its aims.

With contributions from a range of subject experts, including young people themselves, the book challenges current policies and practices on young people’s participation. It asks how young people can be better supported to take part in social change and decision-making and what can be learnt from young people’s own initiatives.
