Dr Claire Cassidy is a reader in the School of Education at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. Her research interests coalesce around the themes of: practical Philosophy with Children and young people (PwC); children’s human rights, and human rights education; and concepts of child and childhood. Claire leads the Postgraduate Certificate in Philosophy with Children at Strathclyde, which is part of the MEd (Education Studies) and the EdD(PwC) pathways. Claire convenes the Philosophy with Children and Communities Network and works to raise the profile of practical philosophy for children and adults in a range of contexts. She is committed to the promotion of children’s participation and sees practical philosophy as a way towards achieving that goal.
