Peace & Conflict: Journal of Peace Psychology published a second special issue, which examines what kinds of interventions at both practice and policy levels are necessary in order to support war-affected children. Spanning several continents and integrating conceptual frameworks related to children’s social ecologies and resilience, the two issues simultaneously deepen our contextual understanding of war-affected children and inspire concerted action to enable healing, peace, and social justice for children in settings of war and political violence.
The development of appropriate supports for war-affected children requires deeper listening to and engagement with children to discern their needs and lived experiences. It also requires critical thinking about issues of power and culture, ethics, and how to intervene in appropriate ways. To help address these critical issues, Peace & Conflict: Journal of Peace Psychology published a special issue, which features leading researchers, practitioners, and policy analysts. This issue brings forward empirical, child-led, participatory work that deepens the understanding of the lived experiences of children affected by armed conflict.
This special issue of the academic journal Children & Society was guest-edited by two CPC faculty affiliates, Myriam Denov and Bree Akesson. It explores the realities of children affected by political violence. The editorial article introduces the journal’s special issue discussing the intersection of rights and realities.
We are proud to announce the launch of a special issue of the peer-reviewed journal Global Social Welfare: Research, Policy, and Practice; guest-edited with colleagues from the Better Care Network, the nine articles in the issue present the cutting edge of research concerning measuring issues related to children’s care. With special permission from the journal’s editor, we will be able to make all articles open access during the month of June, so please do take advantage of that period to access the articles!
This special issue represents an effort to review the economic dimensions of child protection and well-being.
