Empowering Children through Law and Play

FORTITUDE is a 5 year research project funded by a 2 million euro grant from the European Research Council.

The aim of the project is to improve children’s ‘legal capability’ – in other words, their ability to deal effectively with the many law-related problems they come across in their everyday lives.

Our approach to this research is unusual because we are basing it around theories of play and games.

In the FORTITUDE project we will be working with children to create digital and non-digital games as ways of measuring and improving their ability to deal with law-related problems in their everyday lives, and building their confidence to speak out when their legal rights are violated.
