Principal Investigator: Franco Carnevale
Funding Source: SSHRC
Period: 2010-2012

This grant supported the development of an innovative and truly inter-disciplinary research team that articulated a new field of inquiry: Interdisciplinary Studies of Childhood Ethics. In its first year, four research assistants helped the investigators critically examine the literature across a wide range of diverse disciplines, to identify current research priorities in childhood ethics. Moreover, the team has conducted consultations with an Interdisciplinary Panel of Expert Consultants.
