In her inaugural lecture, Professor Sarah Crafter will explore what it means for children and young people to be ‘brokers of care’ in the context of migration. What does it mean for young people to provide care for others, such as family members, peers and the local community? What does it mean for children and young people to be receivers of care in the context of a hostile immigration environment? Visit OU research event page for further details.
