Sharing their narratives: research report launch

About this event

We are pleased to invite you to join us at Thammasat University for an event that will present the findings from the “Sharing their Narratives” research project which was jointly conducted by Thammasat University and Bath University between 2019 and 2021. The research was titled “Sharing their Narratives: A research project exploring children’s and families’ experiences of alternative care in Thailand”. The event will launch the project report, and include a presentation of the research findings and an exhibition of the children and young people’s art works. This will be a hybrid event with both in-person participation at the venue and online via zoom.

Despite the challenges of Covid-19 we were able to undertake this research project and reach a significant number of children (n.160) living in alternative care and their parents and families (n.20). The children we engaged lived in a range of different care settings from Migrant Learning Centres, Buddhist temples, Government Children’s Homes and NGO centres. In total, we accessed 13 different care providers across four different regional locations and provinces in Thailand: Central (Bangkok and Chonburi), North (Tak and Chiang Mai), North East (Nong Khai), South (Ja Na and Hat Yai).

We hope that the participant’s voices and their views that we will share at the event -in both narrative and art forms- will be of interest to academics, practitioners and policy makers and they bring about improvement for the children who are growing up in alternative care in Thailand.

The event is open to all, please register in advance to assist us with our arrangements.
