The CCYP promotes the status of children and young people in research, policy and practice. It brings together four important strands: an interdisciplinary approach; a focus on research, education and advocacy for children and young people; an emphasis on cross-sectoral partnerships to promote evidence-based policy and practice and the inclusion and participation of children and young people.
SJSC focuses on understanding and promoting socially just outcomes in terms of well-being, participation and inclusion, through research collaborations with community, policymakers and practitioners, using where possible, participative research methodologies. Research is in the areas of Childhood, Youth and Ageing; Place, Communities and Social Capital; Population Health and Equity.
The University of Otago Centre for Research on Children and Families aims to conduct and disseminate research of the highest international quality that promotes understanding of the underpinnings of well being among children and families. The Centre serves as an interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners, policy makers and educators with basic and applied interests in advancing knowledge about children, families and the contexts within which they live. The Centre takes a research orientation to its work, with a practice and policy purpose to its output. It is currently involved in three Childwatch International study groups.
