Theorizing children’s social citizenship: New welfare states and inter-generational justice

2018-03-04, Devine, Dympna, Cockburn, Tom

This article argues that children's social status and positioning as children needs to be foregrounded in discussions of social citizenship and the re/development of the welfare state against a backdrop of neo-liberal economic and social reform. Set within a theoretical model that highlights the circular and de-centred exercise of power across fields of action, the subject of children's citizenship, understood as a 'citizenship habitus' is explored, taking the exemplar of education and migrant children's positioning in schools.
