Social inclusion and participation have become policy mantras in the UK and Europe. As these concepts are being translated into policies and practice, it is a critical time to examine - and challenge - their interpretation, implementation and impacts. This book asks how far and in what way social inclusion policies are meeting the needs and rights of children and young people. In particular this chapter explores young people's own conceptualisations of social inclusion and exclusion. The book concludes with an agenda for progressing participation and social inclusion, both for and with children and young people.
