Vulnerable Children: An introductory talk about child protection and IICRD
Join members of the International Institute for Child Rights and Development (IICRD) for this informative evening talk exploring the guiding principles, philosophy and methods of IICRD’s approach to child protection in development (CPID).
CPID aims to strengthen empathetic, evidence based, engaged action for vulnerable children and their communities. Key working principles include: lead with children, start from strengths, build partnerships, work from the inside out, and use the power of ideas. This introductory session also introduces the four key elements required to strengthen child protection systems within the larger discourse of human, community and international development. Examples from IICRD’s 20 years of implementing child’s rights in Canada and around the world will be presented and discussed.
Learn more about IICRD and their important work in the world at Circle of Rights: Creative Approaches in Complex Situations for Social Change for Children, Youth and Communities, March 20-22.
