PERLA

PERLA works to improve the quality of childhood, youth and family research at the University of Tampere, to strengthen connections between scholars from different disciplines within the university and beyond, and to highlight the importance of childhood, youth and family issues also more generally in the society. On a principle level, the Centre sets out to advance the well-being and social standing of children, youth and families. The childhood, youth and family research carried out at the University of Tampere covers a wide range of topics, temporal perspectives and empirical contexts, theoretical and methodological starting points, and research methods.
