Everyday Citizenship of Children from British Asian and Minority Ethnic Communities.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This paper explores the ways in which children express citizenship in their everyday lives, thereby creating a sense of identity. In particular it explores this from the perspective of children from Asian and other minority ethnic communities in the UK. The paper pays particular attention to «Asian» and «Muslim» children, as these complex and multi-faceted categories are subject of particular concern by policy makers today. By a focus on the everyday and cultural we can critique individualistic conceptions of citizenship, subvert the adult/child (citizen/non-citizen) binary, contest the myth of the passive child and present a more nuanced conception of ethnic minority children’s identities.
