Children and Young People

The Children and Young People Thematic Hub draws together a wide range of topics relevant to children and young people, under a common vision to make a transformative contribution to realising children and young people’s human rights by undertaking and promoting inter-disciplinary research, teaching, policy and practice.

As a group, we:

  • work collaboratively and encourage dialogue with and across disciplines and sectors;
  • work with a social justice agenda to recognise children and young people’s rights, across local and international contexts, to value diversity and to challenge inequality;
  • and intentionally amplify and extend existing opportunities and synergies across research, policy and practice to progress children and young people’s meaningful participation and human rights.

Leadership team

The Hub is led by Professor Kay Tisdall and Dr Mary Ann Powell.
