Throughout the 1990s, urban policy in Britain was premised on the importance of public participation in local regeneration and governance, with a view to empowerment and developing citizenship. However, one group, frequently overlooked by the participation process is children, precisely the group whose perceived lack of citizenship causes such concern to many. Whilst they are often only offered token involvement in community regeneration projects, empirical research with children suggests they are capable of the same involvement as adults. Many of the barriers to adult participation may have been avoided if they had been encouraged to be involved fully as children.
