Children, political participation and recognition

Sara Tironi About the author

Abstract

The article aims to substantiate the children’s right to political participation from the Hegelian theory of recognition, empirically systematized by Axel Honneth. It considers a context within which the children are excluded from the possibility of participation in the social and political spheres of influence, often becoming invisible as recipients of public policies.
