The Children and Young People’s Centre for Justice (CYCJ) is supporting a fully funded PhD studentship in Law with stipend, offered by the Institute for Inspiring Children’s Futures.
This is an opportunity for globally-minded PhD students in 2022 to build on the excellent team of Inspiring Children’s Futures doctoral students, to explore ways to best ensure children’s rights and wellbeing post-COVID, in an exciting, innovative and multidisciplinary Doctoral Research Centre.
Two PhD studentships are available: in Law, with a focus on a child friendly justice system (which CYCJ has part funded and will offer supervisory support for); and Politics, with a focus on government policy implementation for children’s wellbeing.
At CYCJ, we are particularly keen to hear from candidates who want to work with us (and others) to explore child-friendly justice, and to understand the challenges to justice for children in conflict with the law.
The application deadline has been extended to April 25, 2022.
Professor Jennifer Davidson, Executive Director, Institute for Inspiring Children’s Futures, said:
“This is a really exciting opportunity to work as part of a brilliant and passionate multidisciplinary team of people, to generate new knowledge to make the world a better place for children, and to work with others to apply that knowledge across policy and practice around the world, as we work toward a post-COVID recovery that keeps children at its heart—especially the children facing the greatest adversities.”
CYCJ is an associated partner with the Institute for Inspiring Children’s Futures, a joint initiative at the University of Strathclyde with a collective vision of ensuring that children and young people have what they need to reach their full potential, particularly those who face adversity.
