The Emotional Relations of Children’s Participation Rights (TO BE RESCHEDULED; DATE TO BE CONFIRMED)

Children's participation rights, enshrined in the UNCRC (1989), have been a popular area of research, policy and practice for decades. Although emotions are often acknowledged as an important element of children's participation rights, it is rare to find emotions being explicitly centred and theorised in dialogue with UNCRC rights. This event brings together a group of speakers who reflect on the role of emotions for children’s participation rights, highlighting challenges and opportunities of this work within current global contexts, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants are invited to share their own thoughts and experiences on emotions and participation, and to consider opportunities for collaborative ways of taking this work forward.

This free public event aimed at researchers and academics and anyone working in practice/NGOs on the topic of children’s participation rights with an interest in emotions.
