Childhood and Youth Studies Research Group

We are a new and fast-growing research group, bringing together students, researchers and academics at Moray House School of Education and Sport. We are linked across the University of Edinburgh, to maximise the skills and capacity across disciplines and subject areas. We work together with children and young people, practitioners, and policy-makers locally, nationally and globally.
