The network is a low-threshold offer for early career researchers in the field of qualitative childhood research and the child perspective to get in contact with each other and to jointly develop tasks and activities from within the group. Accordingly, it is primarily about international networking with colleagues from the field of childhood research. So, in principle, it is about getting to know the scientific field in other countries. This gives young scientists the opportunity to decenter their own view and learn about global connections in the scientific community.
As early career scientists associated with the CUWB study, we will participate in CUWB activities such as research meetings or conferences to meet face-to-face, share experiences, and discover similarities and differences. On the one hand, as the group generally acts as a supportive network, on the other hand, the open structure should allow us to derive individual interests. For example: sharing data, analyzing material from different perspectives, facilitating stays abroad, etc. We invite young researchers who feel connected to the international study 'Children's Understandings of Well-being - Global and Local Contexts' and its topics to join the network. We invite early career scholars who conduct research on topics specific to childhood, use qualitative research methods, or explore the concept of well-being to join the network.

We meet online four times a year to discuss selected topics and to organise upcoming events.
