    Aims and Scope


    This journal presents multidisciplinary research on vulnerability and disadvantage in childhood. It provides a platform for conceptual and theory-oriented analysis, empirical data, and discussions of a diversity of methods and methodology relating to the study of childhood vulnerability across the globe. The journal focuses on, and brings together three perspectives: the theory of childhood as a social and historical construct with children being stakeholders; the systematical analysis of structural forms of disadvantage of children and youths, including causes and consequences; and a geographical approach, offering regional and context-specific research on such issues as poverty, disasters and wars in different regions, mental health, as well as new findings from children at risk studies.
