If you have a question about this talk, please contact Felicia Huppert.

Child well-being is currently measured by governments, NGOs, academics and local authorities. But curiously there are no explicit theories of what is purportedly being measured. This is in contrast with adult well-being of which there are many well-developed theories. In this talk I attempt to explain why and to correct the situation. The work presented is in collaboration with Professor Ramesh Raghavan, a public health scientist at the Washington University in St Louis.

This talk is part of the Well-being Institute Seminars series.
