Caribbean Child Research Conference 2012 Examines Political Independence and Child Rights

The Sir Arthur Institute of Social and Economic Studies (SALISES), The UWI, Mona, in collaboration with UNICEF and several partners will stage the annual Caribbean Child Research Conference on November 6-7, 2012 at the Jamaica Conference Centre. The theme is Political Independence and Child Rights.
The Caribbean Child Research Conference is a regional interdisciplinary conference covering a range of child-related themes. It aims to share research on children, strengthen the network of researchers on children’s issues, and encourages research both in priority areas and in other important but neglected areas. The Conference presents an opportunity for children and adults to examine the status of children and child rights in the Caribbean. The Caribbean conference is however not simply about children - it also facilitates the meaningful participation of children. Children participate by attendance at the conference and presentation on the children’s panels.
The Conference commences with an Opening Ceremony on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 at 8 am where several presentations will explore topics including: children in violent circumstances, mentoring, child participation, health and child development. The second day of the Conference will see children’s presentation and also an Awards Ceremony to recognize the most outstanding child researcher.
