Children's Geographies is a peer-reviewed journal that provides an international forum to discuss issues that impact upon the geographical worlds of children and young people under the age of 25 and of their families. The journal aims to be accessible to new researchers, including postgraduate students and academics at an early stage of their research careers, and to practitioners with an interest in children, youth and families. Study of the geographies of this kind, whilst emphasising the importance of place, space and spatiality, inevitably cuts across inter- and intra-disciplinary boundaries. The journal provides a forum for academics and practitioners with an interest in these multi-faceted geographies, enabling new insights into the diverse and multiple realities of young people's lives.
The journal allows a more sustained focus on the disparities of what it is like to be a young person within different societal contexts, but also enables geographers to link more effectively with colleagues in other disciplines who share similar interests (for example, Sociology, Anthropology, Cultural Studies, Economic Development, Education, Psychology, Legal Studies, Social Policy, Political Science, Urban Design and Architecture). Coherence of this sort further ensures that the findings of geographical research are taken seriously in ongoing public policy debates on children, youth and families.
