This webinar aims to shed light on the impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic on children by looking at it through the capabilities approach. It brings together three scholars from different corners of the globe, who will discuss the situation of children in their own regions, and how this may speak to concerns about the effects that the pandemic has had on children's well-being and capabilities.
Caroline Hart (University of Sheffield): Children living in a Covid-19 World: Reflections from England
Kate Sollis (Australian National University): COVID-19 and its impacts on children and young people in Australia: An evidence review
