Nordic Network of African Childhood and Youth Research (NoNACYR)

Nordic Network of African Childhood and Youth Research (NoNACYR) aims to enhance collaboration among scholars in Nordic countries who carry out research and teaching in childhood and youth studies focusing on the African continent. The Network comprises key research groups, and PhD and post-doctoral fellows from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. Its task includes promoting interdisciplinary dialogue on empirical research findings, collaborative research and publication, and academic and policy debates on research on, about, and/or with children and young people in contemporary Africa. Specific tasks include:
1. To facilitate exchange of research findings and information on African children and youths. This includes theoretical, conceptual, methodological, practical, and ethical knowledge and experiences emanating from diverse disciplines, research projects, and fieldwork contexts.
2. To initiate and foster policy debates between Nordic academics and practitioners on matters affecting children’s and youth’s well-being in contemporary Africa.
3. To institutionalize links between Nordic childhood and youth researchers and students on the one hand and African child researchers and research units on the other.

The network is hosted by Norwegian Centre for Child Research, Norwegian University of Sciences and Technology, and financially supported by NordForsk for the period of 2012-2014.
