The Department of Social Work, Care and Justice at Liverpool Hope University is hosting a major international conference in June 2016:
23rd and 24th June 2016
In a rapidly changing world children and young people are subjected to a wide range of social, cultural and economic pressures that impact significantly on their everyday lives. At the same time, these pressures shape educational, social and welfare policies and practices in ways that have direct implications for how professionals work with and for children and young people. This multidisciplinary conference provides an opportunity to disseminate, discuss and explore research that explores children and young people’s action, agency and participation in responding to such changes.
Keynote Speakers include:
Mary Jane Kehily – Professor of Gender and Education in the Centre for Childhood and Youth Studies, Open University.
Jens Qvortrup – Professor of Sociology at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology
Hasina Ebrahim – Professor of Early Childhood and Foundation Phase Education at University of the Free State, Bloemfontein, South Africa
