About the Author:

Dr. Asher Ben-Arieh focuses his research on the nature of children’s well-being and the factors affecting it, the methodology of social indicators, and the use of indicators of children’s well-being in the process of making and implementing public policy regarding children. The theoretical approach guiding his work is based on the concepts of the power of information, childhood as a sociological stage in itself, and children’s rights. As a member of the team of researchers from Clemson University, Duke University, and the University of Chicago, Dr. Ben- Arieh is examining the effects of Strong Communities in building and strengthening norms of mutual assistance and of collective responsibility for family support. Also, as the Israeli representative in the EU’s COST A/19 working group on child welfare, Dr. Ben-Arieh is both learning from and contributing to the intergenerational perspective framing COST’s work, particularly in relation to children’s roles in advancing their own status.
