Qualitative Research on Children’s Well-being

This Special Issue of the International Journal of Emotional Education brings together papers on the topic Qualitative Research on Children’s Well-being Across National and Cultural Contexts. The inspiration for this Special Issue emerged from recent developments in child well-being research. Three developments, in particular, are relevant for this Special Issue. Firstly, we have seen an increasing number of studies on children’s well-being that involve a multinational or transnational dimension, providing opportunities for comparison of different domains and dimensions of children’s well-being across national contexts. Prominent among these is the Children’s Worlds Study (or ISCWeb study), which collects subjective well-being data from tens of thousands of children from over 45 nations. This research provides rich comparative data at the national level on a range of well-being domains including children’s living arrangements, material possessions, time-use, activities, life-satisfaction, school-satisfaction, sense of self, safety, family relationships, peer relationships and assessment of neighborhood.
