Personal profile

Biography

Tobia Fattore's empirical research is in the broad areas of the sociology of childhood and sociology of work. He is currently working on several projects in these areas. This includes a sociological examination of children's well-being, that analyses children's understandings and sense of well-being and how this reflects processes of modernisation. He has undertaken a study of children's work in developed economies that shows how transformations in the world of work have created different opportunities for children for social integration.

He is currently a coordinating lead researcher on the multi-national study Children's Understandings of Well-being - Global and Local Contexts' whichinvolves a qualitative investigation into how children experience well-being from a comparative and global perspective, to explore the relative importance of local, regional and national contexts for children's well-being (see http://www.cuwb.org/).
