Description

Department of Education & Professional Studies / Centre for Public Policy Research

Venue: Edmund J Safra Lecture Theatre, King’s College London, Strand Campus.

This one day conference is the fourth event hosted by Child Studies at King’s College London. ‘Participation into Practice’ will be of interest to all those – including academics, professionals and policy makers – concerned with the importance of direct research with children and young people in influencing public policy and practice. In keeping with the multi-disciplinary and practice-oriented focus of the Child Studies programme at King’s, speakers* will include academics and practitioners from a range of disciplines.

Proceeds will be donated to the award-winning Family Drug and Alcohol Court, part of Coram.

The MA Child Studies/International Child Studies programmes at King’s promote a multi-disciplinary approach to work with vulnerable children and young people, underpinned by a children’s rights perspective.

*Please note that the organisers reserve the right to change the programme at short notice in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
