    Rights in Records by Design is a three-year Australian Research Council-funded Discovery Project that is running from 2017 to 2019. This project brings together an interdisciplinary research team to investigate the recordkeeping and archival needs for those whose childhoods are impacted by child welfare and protection systems. Using a participatory action research approach the team of recordkeeping, historical, social work, early childhood education and community researchers are exploring the design of Lifelong Living Archives for those who experience childhood out-of-home Care. The goal of research and in designing the Archive is to re-imagine recordkeeping frameworks, processes and systems in support of responsive and accountable child-centred out-of-home Care, and to enable historical justice and reconciliation. Chief Investigator Associate Professor Joanne Evans and post-doctoral researcher Dr. Gregory Rolan from the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash University in Australia talk to PDT&C about this project.
