CREOC at Keio University is committed to advancing our scientific knowledge of the current state of equality for children, the mechanism through which the inequality evolves over the course of child development, and the methods to evaluate the relevant policies that aim to expand the equality of opportunity for children.
The missions of our center are follows.
