Our research is undertaken by a diverse multidisciplinary team.
Researchers bring different disciplinary understandings to the Centre from sociology, psychology, social policy, economics, education, law, health, business, and environmental science.
Our research covers a wide range of issues that impact on children and young people's rights and wellbeing. These include disability, family law, loss and grief, teacher learning, out of home care, consumerism, technology, relationships, belonging and connection, abuse and neglect, childhood cultures, play, the transition to school, climate change and environment.
Respecting the human dignity of children and young people is central to our work. This calls for constant attention to ethics, not only in regard to the research we conduct but also through our overall engagement with children and young people and with the different contexts in which they live their lives.
