PhD Symposium

PhD Symposium of Children's Rights

Initiated in 2013, the Children's Rights Research PhD Symposium is a yearly gathering promoting collaboration and scholarly exchange among doctoral candidates and their supervisors from a diverse range of universities and disciplines. The primary aim of this event is to stimulate discussions, encourage exploration, and foster the progression of research focused on children's rights.  

Central to the symposium's purpose is its function as a platform for doctoral candidates to present their research, leading to intellectually stimulating debates and productive engagement with fellow scholars. The symposium offers an exceptional opportunity to expand academic perspectives, spark innovative ideas, and contribute significantly to our comprehension of children's rights.
