Abstract

Björn Andersson och Susanne Liljeholm Hansson presented: "Service User Involvement and Participation. Partispace – Formal, non-formal and informal possibilities of young people's participation in European cities and styles of participation". The formal level is about elections, membership in political parties and taking part in youth parliaments or councils. These are activities that often are labelled participation . The non-formal setting is about associations and youth organizations, often supported by various youth work efforts. Finally, the informal level is about all kinds of youth activities, often not considered as participatory, but which nonetheless contain elements that affect young peoples relation to society. Methods used for gathering data are interviews, observations, case studies, group discussions and reconstructing participation biographies. There is also action research projects carried out by young people themselves. During the seminar we will present the work done in Gothenburg this far. We will discuss and reflect upon the theoretical and methodological approaches used in the study.
