The seminar “Creating Networks that Advance Capacity-Building on Child Rights and Public Policy” will focus on collaborations across Latin America.

Participating universities and organizations are: FLACSO –México; Instituto de Investigaciones Jurídicas – UNAM, México; Universidad Externado de Colombia; Red CLACSO –Latinoamérica; CINDE – Universidad de Manizales –Colombia; Movimiento Interamericano de los Derechos del Niño –MINDI- Latinoamérica; and sponsors UNDP, UNICEF and

Academia and public policy institutes demand increased connectivity and interdisciplinary approaches to address the 21st century’s complex social contexts and inequalities associated with childhood. In Latin America, it is especially important to promote dialogue among stakeholders such as thinkers and teachers — those who originate and disseminate knowledge.  They can improve the impact of public policy and the social agenda for children and adolescents with increased communication and collaboration.

Equity for Children will follow the event and post more news and interviews from the conference soon.
