Congratulations to Cliodhna Martin, PhD in Children and Youth Studies scholar, who has been awarded an IRC post graduate scholarship for her research entitled Dublin – a child friendly city? An interdisciplinary study of children and young peoples agency in, and lived experience of, the urban environment, 1997- 2017. This interdisciplinary study draws on the fields of children’s rights, sociologies of childhood, geography and urban studies. It  explores the experience of Dublin as a Child Friendly City during a period of intensive boom and bust (from 1997 – 2017).  It traces how this rapidly changing economic and policy landscape impacted on children and young people in terms of  their engagement with the urban environment.
