|Title:||Pathways to participation: openings, opportunities and obligations||Other Titles:||A New Model for Enhancing Children’s Participation in Decision-making, in line with Article 12.1 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child||Authors:||Shier, Harry||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/12051||Date:||Apr-2001||Online since:||2021-03-18T13:19:43Z||Abstract:||The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child has raised the profile of children's participation in the United Kingdom. Hart's ‘ladder of participation’ has been the most influential model in this field. This paper offers an alternative model, based on five levels of participation: 1. Children are listened to. 2. Children are supported in expressing their views. 3. Children's views are taken into account. 4. Children are involved in decision‐making processes. 5. Children share power and responsibility for decision‐making. In addition, three stages of commitment are identified at each level: ‘openings’, ‘opportunities’ and ‘obligations’. The model thus provides a logical sequence of 15 questions as a tool for planning for participation.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Wiley||Journal:||Children & Society||Volume:||15||Issue:||2||Start page:||107||End page:||117||Copyright (published version):||2001 Wiley||Keywords:||Decision-making; Children's participation; Conceptual models; Shier's Model of Participation; Pathways to Participation||DOI:||10.1002/chi.617||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||ISSN:||0951-0605||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
