Abstract

This review examines the literature in the context of a research project that sets out to investigate reasons for social inclusion and exclusion among children and young people in regional, rural and remote locations within the North Coast area of New South Wales, Australia. The review explores factors such as social and cultural capital, socio-economic status, rurality, educational aspirations, gender, cultural identity, school and neighbourhood effects and the role of technology. Literature around the theory and methods of involving children and young people in research is also reviewed.
