Special Issue: Children and Young People's Politics in Everyday Life (Space and Polity 2013, 17:1)

This special issue addresses several eminent themes in contemporary research on youthful politics. The individual articles work to pinpoint the specificity of children and young people’s political agencies, roles and action, as well as politics as an unquestionable element of all human life including childhood and youth. All papers study contextual youthful political agency, yet stress different aspects and emphasise specific questions as they arise in particular empirical contexts. Differently aged and situated children and young people are appreciated as agents with pasts, presents and futures, their political lives are interpreted as spatially grounded, and their development and action is politicised on various theoretical grounds. Besides producing new knowledge on children and young people’s lived worlds, these papers reflect on the meanings of ‘the political’ in different contexts of childhood and youth and provide an important gateway between the sub-disciplinary discussion and the more generic study of spatial politics. As a follow-up to the 2003 Space and Polity special issue (by Philo & Smith) this collection provides an overview on developments in the research area during the past decade.
