This Manifesto emerges from the work of six of BERA’s Special
Interest Groups, or SIGs as they are usually called. The six SIGs
that came together to undertake this work responded to the
call from BERA to find innovative ways of celebrating the 40th
anniversary of the Association during 2014.
The task they set themselves was to review a wide range of
research carried out by BERA members and others with a view
to drawing together the implications for policy relating to the
experiences and the rights and responsibilities of children and
young people. They have also been stimulating debate through
a very active blog.
