The core theme of participation leads inevitably to the issue of empowerment. Participation is at its basis a matter of power and control. For the particular case of this dissertation, the power that youth can have is contextualized accordingly to their position in society, their family position, their gender, ethnicity, as well as their class. How are these youth empowered? I which spheres are they empowered? How do they use their power to participate? Power to create? Power to communicate? to learn? to access information?

However, what is the quality of this participation? of this access to content? of this access to expressive tools?
