Governance of children's everyday spaces

Cobb, Charlotte L., Danby, Susan J., & Farrell, Ann (2005) Governance of children's everyday spaces. Australian Journal of Early Childhood, 30(1), pp. 14-20.


With the emergence of sociological and economic change there is increasing attention given to governance of children’s spaces in recent years. This paper discusses these changes and how they have impacted on, and contributed to, this increased interest. The paper draws on the sociology of childhood framework in order to examine how children themselves actively respond to and participate in enacting governance within school spaces and also within their own peer cultures. It addresses an in-progress study being undertaken to explore young children’s everyday interactions within an early childhood setting.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
