Using international evidence to identify creative policy solutions

3 Jul 2019
Description

This report draws together research presented at a symposium, ‘The impact of inequalities in the early years on outcomes over the life course: Using international evidence to identify creative policy solutions’, held in February 2019 in Scotland. International academics and policy-makers were invited to discuss the impact of childhood inequalities on life outcomes across a broad range of topics including education, crime and well-being.

This summary report comprises findings that were presented and policy discussions that followed. The presentations drew on a range of international evidence from the US, Israel, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia, together with findings emerging from Scottish and UK data sets, exploring key stages in a young person's life, from early adversity in early childhood through adolescence and the impact of this on adult lives.
