    Abstract

    Millions of children around the world grow up, for all or some of their childhood, outside of the care of their family (Desmond et al., 2020). Yet the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) places a central importance on the rights of children to live with their families and communities, and for families to be supported to provide adequate care and to be reunited when separation happens (United National General Assembly [UNGA], 1989). Safe and nurturing family care is seen to be in the best interests of the child (UNGA, 2010) and there is a growing evidence base of good practice and wellbeing outcomes as separated childhoods gain increasing attention. There is, therefore, an opportunity to promote further dialogue and ensure that research reflects diverse global experiences.
