Children's rights, social justice and social identities in Scotland

A programme run by the Scottish Universities Insight Institute (SUII).
The key objectives of this project are to:

  • create meaningful knowledge exchange opportunities between children and young people, practitioners, policy makers and researchers from the interdisciplinary areas of children's rights, social justice, social identities, childhood/family studies and intersectionality
  • generate new knowledge and identify priorities for action by creating a new network for interdisciplinary and cross-sector exchange and collaboration, bringing together early career and established experts in the fields, for addressing children and young people's inequalities in research, policy and practice
  • disseminate innovative research, policy and practice
  • put children and young people's inequalities on the agenda in research, policy and practice

The website includes presentations and recordings (audio and video) from a series of four seminars held in 2013-14.
