International Child Protection and Rights Consortium (ICPRC)

ICPRC was created in 2006 to bring together social scientists, governments, UN agencies, and NGOs working to bring about broad based systems change in support of child protection.

The purpose of the ICPRC is to strengthen the evidence base in better understanding the impact of children’s rights and assisting in implementing child protection policy and programming. This is achieved through collaborative research, development of capacity building and monitoring tools, and in studying innovation in programming and policy. ICPRC seeks to build from the best of implementation efforts in child rights and protection, while also recognizing that new approaches are needed to better ground the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) in a child’s own lived experience and in the context of their peers, family, community and culture.

ICPRC is particularly interested in better linking research
