It is the most significant study of children ever to have taken place in this country and will help us to improve our understanding of all aspects of childhood and child development. The study is following the progress of two groups of children: a Child Cohort of 8,500 children who were interviewed at nine and thirteen years of age and an Infant Cohort of 11,100 children who were interviewed at nine months, three years and five years of age. The main aim of the study is to paint a full picture of children in Ireland and how they are developing in the current social, economic and cultural environment. This information will be used to assist in policy formation and in the provision of services, with a view to ensuring that all children living in Ireland have the best possible start in life. Growing Up in Ireland is a government study. The Department of Children and Youth Affairs is funding it in association with the Department of Social Protection and the Central Statistics Office. The Department of Children and Youth Affairs is overseeing and managing the study, which is being carried out by a group of researchers led by the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) and Trinity College Dublin. CONFERENCE AIMS This is Growing Up in Ireland’s sixth annual research conference and has been organised by the joint ESRI/TCD Study Team. Dr James Reilly T.D., Minister for Children and Youth Affairs will launch the latest major report from the study at the start of the conference. With 25 papers being presented, the conference will also provide a platform for discussion on a broad range of research from both the Infant and Child Cohorts. KEYNOTE SPEAKER The keynote address will be given by Professor Susan McVie on “The impact of educational experience and school exclusion on criminal careers: Findings from the Edinburgh Study of Youth Transitions and Crime.” Professor McVie is Professor of Quantitative Criminology at the University of Edinburgh, CoDirector of the Edinburgh Study of Youth Transitions & Crime, and Director of the Applied Quantitative Methods Network (AQMeN) Research Centre. Susan’s research interests and published work predominantly focus on: youth crime and justice; crime patterns and trends; criminal careers and developmental-criminology.
