To explore the effects of current global issues on children's welfare and development within a range of different contexts and perspectives.

The module will also investigate the role of governments and NGOs to provide intervention and advocacy to bring about social change and justice and equity for children in crisis, including looking in detail at recent reports on children's well-being, e.g., Innocenti.
