9th Children’s Rights Research Symposium

The 9th PhD Symposium, themed "Critical Approaches to Children’s Rights," was hosted by the University of Antwerp in collaboration with CREAN and the Children's Rights Knowledge Centre on December 4th and 5th, 2023.

This annual event provides a platform for doctoral candidates and supervisors from diverse disciplines, such as law, sociology, education, anthropology, psychology, history, and more. The symposium aims to facilitate the exploration and discussion of research on children's rights, fostering a dynamic forum for the exchange of ideas and the development of thoughtful discourse. We anticipate a meaningful and enriching symposium.
