Intersectional childhoods: resources and networks

Date: 2nd February 2015
Category: General measures of implementation

A selection of resources are now available following completion of the seminar series 'Children's Rights, Social Justice and Social Identities in Scotland: Intersections in Research, Policy and Practice', funded by the Scottish Universities Insight Institute in 2013-14.

The aims of the seminar series included to generate new knowledge and identify priorities for action in the field of childhood identities and inequalities, children's rights, social justice, childhood/family studies and intersectionality and firmly put children and young people's inequalities on the agenda in research, policy and practice.

The outcomes of the seminar series included to create a greater awareness of childhood inequalities and equitable practice; a fuller understanding of the importance of intersectionality; a critical appreciation of the connections between current policy, legislation and practice and an understanding of ways of addressing childhood inequalities and promoting a fair society
in policy and practice by identifying strengths, potential gaps and ways forward.
