IARS is an inter-university and interdisciplinary research group which was born with the desire to contribute from research to the improvement of the care for Children and Adolescents in Social Risk. The group is formed by academics and professionals who want to support professionals and policy makers to develop their work based on scientific evidence.
While good progress has been made in recent decades in the care of children and youth people at risk, there are many obstacles which hinder the social and labor insertion of these youth. That is why the confluence of the efforts by social agents, professionals, researchers and managers is more necessary than ever.
On this website you will find information about our group, carried out and ongoing research, publications with the results, and our contact details.
