Strengthening Child Protection in Community

Saturday, March 15, 2014 - 6:00am to Sunday, March 16, 2014 - 2:00pm

An Evidence-based Approach to Child Protection Systems Strengthening

This innovative and unique course invites scholar-practitioners and child protection professionals to an experiential journey in Child Protection Systems Strengthening. We will address the concepts, principles, tools, and self-reflection found in IICRD’s evidence-based approach to Child Protection Systems Strengthening.

IICRD's approach to protecting children is innovative and unique. To protect children and strengthen the broader child protection systems, we apply five key principles: lead with children, start from strengths of community and culture, build partnerships, work from the inside-out, and use the power of ideas.   

Through the application of these five principles, our approach to child protection systems focus on these five strategic areas:

1. Legislation, policy, enforcement and monitoring mechanisms

2. Intersectoral child protection referral and response services

3. Social change,  including attitudinal change

4. Understanding and cooperation between formal and non-formal care and protection systems

5. Child and youth participation


March 15th  & 16th, IICRD is offering a two-day training course on child protection systems strengthening. This course will be experiential in nature, and will offer knowledge, skills, and self reflection practices in the area of child protection systems strengthening. Using a series of case examples, instructors will draw on IICRD's 20 years of experience in child protection systems strengthening at the local, national, and international level.
