Theme: Childhood and Youth

Exploring Children’s Relationships across Majority and Minority Worlds

The seminar series brought together leading research on children’s relationships, to foster debate, challenge and dialogue across Majority and Minority world* contexts. It had a distinctly interdisciplinary agenda, bringing together theoretical developments and research in Childhood Studies with concepts of intimacy and relationships. At a time when investment in children’s services has never been so extensive and there is considerable concern about UK children’s well-being, this seminar series was very timely to consider the implications of the above for policy and practice.

There were four seminars in this ESRC seminar series, which took place over 2010-2012
