On Friday 7th October 2016, Dr David Walker, a Research Fellow at the Jubilee Centre, gave the keynote presentation at the '2016 International Conference on Education Innovation in the E Era' at the National Taichung University of Education.  His talk, entitled 'Good Friendships among Children: A Theoretical and Empirical Investigation' described research in UK primary schools which was carried out as part of the Jublee Centre's Character Education in UK Schools project.  In the talk the argument was made that children as young as 9 and 10 years old are capable of high quality friendships.  Dr Walker also presented this work to staff and students in the Department of Education at National Tainang University on Thursday 6th October.  A paper of the same title has also been published recently in the Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour; view the paper here.
