The positive perceptions of children and young people articulated within European youth strategies and the constructive and inclusionary practices that have emerged from them often belie the punitive, exclusionary and stigmatising approaches that many of these countries adopt when working with children and young people who are considered vulnerable, ‘at risk of’ or who actually display problematic behaviours (e.g. offending, drug use, teenage pregnancy).
Using empirical data from the evaluation of the Welsh Assembly Government’s ‘Extending Entitlement’ youth inclusion strategy as its touchstone, this paper explores and discusses the potential advantages of pursuing a proactive, inclusionary, children first, children’s rights agenda when model of working with young people.
