Equity for Children E-Newsletter. N° 43 | August | 2014

Dear Friends,

The Scientific Committee of the Comparative Research Programme on Poverty (CROP) at The University of Bergen met in Norway on June 30.  My colleagues on the Committee and I presented research and began work on a CROP Strategic Plan and CROP Communication Plan for 2015 -2020.

On July 14, Equity for Children held a colloquium on child care as an issue of urban and social policy at The National University of Tres de Febrero in Buenos Aires. Panelists included: Eleonor Faur (Sociologist and PhD in Social Sciences, The Latin American Faculty of Social Sciences), Patricia Redondo (Teacher National University of La Plata, The Latin American Faculty of Social Sciences) and Elizabeth Jelin (Senior Researcher The National Scientific and Technical Research Council/The Institute of Economic and Social Development).  Our colloquium was the first in the series, which focuses on the problems of urban policies for the eradication of child poverty and inequity and seeks to strengthen local governments as they move towards the full realization of the rights of children and adolescents.

Our “Approaches to Equity” series continues with two new interviews available on our Website. The focus this month is on foundations, and we speak with Nonet T. Sykes from the The Annie E. Casey Foundation and Margeret  Hemple from The Ford Foundation.

I hope you are having a productive summer and, as always, we thank you for your continued support.


Alberto Minujin. Executive Director
