Founded in 2006 by Professor Alberto Minujin, Equity for Children is part of the Studley Graduate Program in International Affairs (SGPIA) at The New School.
We focus on “translating” academic knowledge into useful tools for all those who work in the defense and promotion of child and adolescent rights: students, professionals, government and non-profit practitioners, political decision-makers and members of the media, among other target audiences.
Equity for Children strives to develop processes that improve child well-being through the creation and dissemination of original research; seminars and in-person meetings for stakeholders to discuss cutting edge issues and concepts, and take action to reduce inequality; and through advocacy with decision-makers and policymakers.
We aim to promote innovative political actions and to build effective solutions that guarantee the well-being and the rights of children and teenagers.
Our online platforms in English, Portuguese and Spanish, establish various communication streams to develop virtual meet-ups, and to disseminate academic publications, technical reports, best practices and analyses related to child well-being.
