Young people, participation and public space

Dee, Mike (2004) Young people, participation and public space. In Youth in Local Government Conference , 1-3 July 2004, Children's Issues Centre, University of Otago, Dunedin. (Unpublished)


Young people are major users of public space, White (1990,1998) Loader (1996).

  • Young people are constructed as ‘problem’ and ‘non citizens’, Brown (1998).

  • Young people report feeling unconsulted, not part of community life, Measor & Squires (2000), Article 12 (2000), Tyler et al (1998).

  • Young people and citizenship/participation is a major issue.

  • Public Space issues affect others also such as the homeless, aged, women, Indigenous people and people of middle eastern appearance.

Impact and interest:

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.
