Childhood & Youth


Research into childhood and youth is spread across disciplines from developmental psychology to big data analysis, from the historical study of attitudes to child abuse to sports education. Activity has tended to focus around large scale, externally-funded groupings and partnerships, including the Childhood and Youth Research Group, based, but not exclusive to MHSES, the Data for Children Collaborative and the Physical Activity for Health  Research Centre. Partners include UNICEF and the UN, as well as government, health, and educational agencies.
