Each year the area study centers join together to sponsor a Joint Area Centers Symposium (JACS) on a theme of common interest. This year’s theme, “Children and Globalization,” reflects concerns among parents, educators and public policy officials worldwide about the impact of the global economy, migration, global media, war and social change on the socialization and rights of children. This symposium promises to be an exciting event that will bring together scholars and experts from many different disciplines to discuss the meaning of childhood today, the experiences of children in diverse contexts, the impact of child labor and war on children’s lives, and debates about children’s rights.
