Spain: The Catalan Interdisciplinary Research Network on Children's Rights and Children's Quality of Life (X.C.I.I.I.)

The Catalan Interdisciplinary Research Network on Children’s Rights and Children’s Quality of Life (X.C.I.I.I.) is formed by twelve research groups at five Catalan universities and consists of seventy-six researchers. From its beginning the network has been interdisciplinary and is composed of researchers in the fields of psychology, pedagogy mass-media and social education. This network began with Catalan research collaboration and is now linked with other countries, mainly European ones, related with social perspectives of studying childhood as a group of the major population. The main principle that guides our work is the Declaration of Children’s Rights as set out in the UN convention and the promotion of children’s quality of life.
