Our Work

The Children’s Policy Centre undertakes research on a range of issues relating to the human rights, well-being and best interests of children and on the nature of childhood in contemporary societies. 

Our approach to research is genuinely inter-disciplinary and policy-relevant.  Our research aims to create spaces for children’s experiences, views and priorities to be understood and brought into policy debates.
