This chapter presents a series of reflections on children's participation and inclusion from a geographical perspective. It begins by giving a brief overview of recent work on children's spaces in human geography, going on to explore some of the key concepts the geographical imagination has to offer the theorisation of children's participation and inclusion. Then, it looks at research on children and their relationships to school spaces. It concludes by drawing out some problems that this literature raises for the creation of participatory and inclusive spaces. The chapter aims to open up and explore some questions about participation and inclusion, with the help of conceptual resources derived from human geography.

Keywords:   children's participation, social inclusion, human geography, school spaces
