My research project
Understanding Children's Rights
My PhD explores how children reason about social issues. I am specifically exploring reasoning about children's rights. My thesis aims to understand what rights are most important to children and the psychological competencies that contribute to the willingness to endorse rights. I also take this further to assess whether children are willing to extend rights endorsements to outgroup members, the reasoning behind these judgments and the competencies that contribute to this. I am conducting part of my research in Nigeria and assessing whether there are socio-cultural variations in reasoning about children's rights. Overall, this project aims to contribute to our understanding of social development, morality, and intergroup relations.
