Vulnerable Children: an Introductory Talk about Child Protection and the Work of the IICRD – an evening talk

Tuesday, March 3, 2015 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

This introductory course explores the guiding principles, philosophy and methods of the International Institute for Child Rights and Development (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.
