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.
Professor Jennifer Davidson, Executive Director, Institute for Inspiring Children’s Futures, says:
“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.
