Education in childhood

The research team "Education in Childhood" focuses on the conditions of growing up within modern societies. The emphasis is on the analysis of the needs and demands of children, of the institutionalized programs as well as the processes of education, upbringing and care in private and public arrangements. In addition, the conditions and processes of encouraging participation and education are analyzed. In our research and teaching, important cross-cutting issues, such as social inequality, diversity, heterogeneity and inclusion, are adressed in relation to the institutionalization of childhood.
