Voice against violence: young people's experiences of domestic abuse policy-making in Scotland

Study undertaken from a feminist and children's rights perspective that emerged from the growing body of literature on children's experiences of domestic abuse, the challenges of childhood studies and the opportunities arising out of the changed socio-political landscape of Scotland since devoltion. It examines, with children and young people experiencing domestic abuse, their own solutions to improve help for children and young people, their perspectives on real and tokenistic participation in Scotland's policy making, and their self-defined ethical and participatory standards to make sustained participation possible.
