Trine Kjørholt , Director and Associate Professor, The Norwegian
Centre for Child Research (NOSEB)
Kjørholt also chairs the COST A19, a network which constitutes the core
of the study group. COST A19 seeks to understand children's welfare in aging
societies. Children's economic and social welfare, children's access to space
and use of time and children's rights and discourses are the highlighted
welfare areas in COST A19 action.
The study group seeks to understand the
interplay of material, social and institutional
forces through emphasizing
theoretical and methodological approaches to children's welfare.
Ongoing research will
be presented at the conference in 2005, but the thematic session will be open
for papers and posters from individual participants.
