In 2012, over 200 academics who are active in international childhood and youth research gathered together alongside young people for a unique ICRYNET conference where they debated and discussed participatory approaches. Participation, Citizenship and Intergenerational Relations in Children and Young People's Lives continues the dialogue between young people and adults that started then. This edited collection draws together work from six countries about participatory research and intergenerational relations. Adopting participatory techniques, the editors worked with children and young people to co-author three chapters that each reflect young people's interpretations of three chapters written by adults. This provides a unique insight into how children and young people view research which is about them as well as highlighting their perspectives on research which resonates with their own life experiences. The book includes reference to a wealth of supplementary visual and audio materials which are available on the conference website at www.dvigc.com.

"All the contributions make a powerful case both for empowering children and young people as researchers capable of generating knowledge about themselves and for the potential of intergenerational relations in academia. Children's literature scholars willing to contemplate possible synergies between their work and childhood studies ... will certainly find it an invaluable source of guidelines on how to pursue an academic practice that is capable of creating a real impact on the lives of both children and adults." (Justyna Deszcz-Tryhubczak, IRSCL Reviews, irscl.com, 2015)
