Abstract
First paragraph: How can we learn from research and practice in both Majority and Minority World contexts? How can we challenge the current academic area of childhood studies, with new and revised theorisations around children and young people's agency and relationships? This special issue addresses these questions, capitalising on the intensive seminar series funded by the UK's Economic and Social Research Council. The series, titled 'Exploring Children's Relationships Across Majority and Minority Worlds', was held between April 2010 and October 2011. It was organised by the Co-Directors and Associate Directors of the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships, a consortium research centre of Scottish universities. Most of the ideas presented in this special issue emerged out of lively discussions at these seminars and we gratefully acknowledge the contributions of all seminar participants.
