How can we study the role of the "dependent"? For many, the answer is to use the concept of agency, which is central to the BCDSS. The second workshop in the "Dependency Workshop Series" will therefore look at the concept and use of agency and the related concepts of structure and practices. Particular focus will be on the relationship between them.
