Annual Report 2016, Dublin

ECER 2016 in Dublin was a successful conference for Network 25 with an increase in the number of paper sessions over the previous year. 

The 8 sessions this year were as follows:

  • School Stages and Transitions
  • Children's Rights: Methodological and Theoretical Issues
  • Children's Rights: Regional Perspectives (Part 1)
  • Children's Rights: Regional Perspectives (Part 2)
  • Rights and Limitations
  • Children's Perceptions
  • Children's Rights: Refugee and Migrant Experiences
  • Digital and Civic Spaces

Attendance across sessions was good and there were some excellent discussions that linked children's rights thematics to a number of contemporary political and research issues.

We welcomed a number of new people to our Network Meeting and it is now possible to <link _blank>join the NW25 mailing list here.

Members of NW25 continue to be actively involved in a wide range of research and publishing initiatives. This included a new book edited by Jenn Gillett-Swan and Vicki Coppock - Children's Rights, Educational Research and the UNCRC: past, present and future, Symposium (2016).  A further special edition of Global Studies in Childhood, including papers given in NW25, is forthcoming in December 2016. Members described a range of further publishing projects and participation in a wide range of international conferences.

Each network holds a Network Meeting during ECER and invites interested researchers to join. We have collected the network meeting minutes.
