Mission Statement

The Equity and Justice Committee is responsible for addressing issues of equity and justice in child development, particularly in an increasingly heterogenous global community. The Committee has a mission to:

  1. Promote the importance and legitimacy of national, international, and interdisciplinary scientific scholarship on topics related to equity and justice in childhood and adolescence.
  2. Enhance efforts to build coherence and to foster conceptual advances within and across the varied approaches to research on equity and justice.
  3. Foster the dissemination and implementation of findings that bear on programs and policies related to equity and justice at both national and international levels.
