Our seminar series aims to inspire and inform, as well as provide a space for discussion. We usually host 3 or 4 seminars each year, related to the themes and values of the CRC. We welcome suggestions for speakers from within the OU as well as from relevant groups at other institutions.
In this third seminar of 2021 hosted by The Open University's Children's Research Centre we examine two different projects with children at the heart of the research process. We consider the way in which organisations can support vulnerable children through research and participatory approaches to understand and enhance opportunities for empowerment of children and young people.
