Organised by the Centre for Research into the Education of Marginalised Children and Young Adults (CREMCYA) and the Centre for the Study of Modern Slavery (CSMS) at St Mary's University.

In the 30 years since the ratification of the United Nations Convention on of the Rights of the Child (CRC), increased scholarly, policy and practice interest has focused on the experiences of children and their rights. Yet children and young people continue to live their lives at the margins around the world – refused citizenship, denied voice, and provided with limited access to rights due to factors such as legal status, location, gender, ‘race’, religion, nationality, and social class.

This conference aims to explore conceptions of social, spatial and generational marginality and how this shapes children and young people’s lives. We are interested in the relationship between the centre and the periphery– in relation to how marginalisation is produced by and through institutional contexts, bureaucratic processes and practice, as well as how it is experienced and embodied within young peoples’ lives. We seek papers that explore the borderlands between and within disciplines focused on exploring childhood and youth at the margins.

The focus of the conference is interdisciplinary and addresses issues of concern to scholars, policymakers, practitioners and young people. We are open to non-traditional approaches to presentation of research.
