The purpose of INTRAC (the International Research Network on Transitions to Adulthood from Care) is to promote national and international research on the transition from care to adulthood (care-leaving).
INTRAC is a community of researchers that works together towards the following strategic objectives:
1. Facilitating dialogue between care-leaving researchers across the globe.
2. Promoting the development of emerging researchers, viz. doctoral candidates; early career academics; and researchers pioneering care-leaving research in their country.
3. Promoting cross-national research on care-leaving.
4. Creating or supporting opportunities for publication of national, international and comparative studies on care-leaving.
5. Facilitating the utilization of research findings to inform policy and practice.
