Children as Experts in their Own Lives: Child Inclusive Research
The Social Justice Social Change Research Centre at the University of Western Sydney is organizing the Symposium Children as experts in their own lives: Child Inclusive Research, preceeding the 2nd ISCI international indicators conference. Plans for this symposium include hearing from children and from adult policymakers and academics on the topic of child research, in plenary and panel sessions and in contributed papers.
Discussing the role and inclusion of children in research, the symposium has invited prevalent researchers and practitioners to present experiences and research. Young people will play an important part in the program, with presentations and participating in the discussions with their experiences and views on children in research.
The symposium is organized by The Social Justice and Social Change Research Centre (SJSC) at the University of Sydney, a Key Institution of Childwatch International. The symposium takes place one day ahead of the 2nd International Conference of the International Society for Child Indicators, co-hosted by SJSC.
Admission of abstracts is now closed. For more information, see the joint ISCI conference and symposium web site.
