Families, Lifecourse and Generations Research Centre
University of Leeds
The Families, Lifecourse and Generations (FLaG) Research Centre at the University of Leeds was established in 2005. The Centre provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and research users interested in families and intergenerational relationships across the lifecourse (including childhood, youth, adulthood and older life).
The centre aims to facilitate and develop collaborative research and links with related centres and groups within and beyond the University of Leeds, and with non-academic networks and organisations at local, national and international level. It aims to build capacity in FLaG research through the inclusion and support of post graduates and researchers at an early stage of their career, to attract and host international postgraduates and visiting academics/fellows; and to provide for the transfer and exchange of knowledge (theoretical, empirical, methodological and policy related) for academic and non-academic members.Membership of the centre is open to staff at the University of Leeds and at other research or higher education institutions; and to colleagues from non-academic organisations with a research, policy or practice interest in this field.
