UCD CHiLD-RC & CRN Annual Conference 2022

Disrupted Lives: Inequalities and Disadvantages for Children and Youth on the Island of Ireland

Globally we are witnessing significant political, environmental, economic and social disruption that impacts the lives of children. War in Europe, the Cost of Living Crisis and the Covid-19 pandemic have further illuminated the pervasive impact of instability and inequality on children’s development, education, health, participation and opportunity. The Children’s Research Network and the UCD CHiLD Research Centre want to explore dimensions of disruption that influence children’s lives to generate research-rich discourse that guides practice and policy as we move toward an uncertain future.

This conference is jointly organised by the Children’s Research Network of Ireland and Northern Ireland (CRN) and University College Dublin Childhood and Human Development Research Centre (UCD CHiLD-RC).

It will take place on Thursday 8th December 2022 in the Sutherland School of Law, University College Dublin. It is free to attend for members of CRN and/or UCD CHiLD-RC.

We will have 38 presentations over the day, including two keynote presentations from Tanya Ward, CEO of The Children’s Rights Alliance, and Ikechukwu Okafor, Consultant in Paediatric Emergency Medicine in Children’s Health Ireland.

Registration closes on the 1st December 2022, and your membership of CRN or CHiLD must be up-to-date by this time in order to attend the conference.  Please book early for what promises to be a fascinating and engaging day of presentations.
