Children's Rights and Research in Education

This seminar by Laura Lundy will discuss children's rights and research in education.

Under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, children have a right to have their views given due weight in all matters affecting them, a requirement that entails more that simply giving children a 'voice' (Lundy, 2007). 

The Centre for Children's Rights at Queen's University Belfast has developed an approach to child rights-based research which aims to ensure children's participation at all stages of research. (Lundy and McEvoy, 2012). 

Drawing on two studies (one with very young children and the other a large scale study in 71 countries), this presentation will explore how children might be involved meaningfully in research projects investigating their views and experiences of education in ways that are respectful of their rights.

This event is open to all and commences from 1pm onwards.

All are welcome. If you have any comments or queries about this event, please email
