The Development of the Moral Compass
09 May 2011

When do young people know right from wrong and understand consequences?

Results of a UK study among children aged 7 to 16.

This was the launch broadcast for a study prepared by the influential Youth Research Forum for The Doha International Institute for Family Studies and Development.

This study of 750 7-16 years olds gives an insight into the age that young people are aware of right and wrong and have developed an understanding of the social, and potentially criminal, implications of their actions.

The free live broadcast seminar was designed to help policy makers gain a deeper understanding of the key factors that drive children’s moral development.
