The Sir Arthur Lewis Institute of Social and Economic Studies (SALISES) at The UWI, St. Augustine Campus, in partnership with the Toronto Metropolitan University and Rights for Children and Youth Partnership (RCYP) Project will host a virtual conference themed, The Wellbeing of Child and Young People in Central America and the Caribbean.

With four (4) Plenary Conference Sessions daily, this conference aims to increase the knowledge of factors that support or hinder the protection of children and youth rights in the Caribbean, Central America, and their diaspora populations in Canada; advise policy-makers and service providers in these regions on effective strategies that promote safety and resiliency; contribute to the creation of evidence-based policies and institutions that respond to violence against children in these three regions and; train students from the three regions on qualitative, quantitative and mixed research methodologies.
