Child Research

The Norwegian Centre for Child Research aims to develop research-based knowledge of childhood and children's everyday life in a changing society. The research is theoretically and methodologically anchored in the interdisciplinary social child research where childhood is understood as a social phenomenon created in a historical and cultural context. There is a dynamic relationship between structural conditions in society, the challenges within politics and how children as social agents actively contribute to creating their own childhood. Children's rights and children's perspective are keywords in the current research.

The research is related to three thematic priorities:

  • Institutionalization of children's life within the modern welfare state
  • Children's rights in a global perspective
  • Children as consumers
