Description

Join us for the launch of the new 'Children and Young People's Research Network' on Universal Children's Day 2017 with the theme of ‘Promoting and protecting the rights of the child’.

The network will bring together academics and partners to develop and deliver projects to understand and better the lives of young people. At the event you will hear about some of our existing projects and have the chance to network and develop collaborations for the future.
