Intersecting childhood identities, inequalities and rights: unpacking concepts and exploring implications

The first in a series of four seminars. It introduced the concept of intersectionality and debates its meanings and purposes for understanding childhood identities and inequalities. It explored the different ways in which this framework can be put into practice by practitioners and policy makers. The seminar involved a combination of short presentations, group discussions and a plenary conversation and addressed the following questions:

  • What do we know about children's intersecting identities and inequalities in Scotland and beyond?
  • How can intersectionality help us to understand overlapping and intersecting childhood identities, experiences and inequalities?
  • What does the concept of intersectionality mean for working with children in policy and practice?

This video captures participants' opinions and observations.
