The Children's Institute UCT seeks to contribute to policies, laws and interventions that promote equality, realise the rights and improve the prospects of all children in South Africa. Established at UCT in 2001, the CI seeks to bring about positive change in the lives of children through a complex but carefully honed combination of social and legal research, multiple level evidence-based advocacy and public engagement, capacity-building, and a communications strategy designed to reach diverse audiences.
The Children's Research Centre was established in 1995 and is a joint initiative of the School of Psychology and the School of Social Work and Social Policy at Trinity College Dublin. The Centre undertakes multi-disciplinary, policy and practice-relevant research on issues concerning children and young people and the contexts within which they live their lives.
The Children’s Issues Centre aims to make a difference in children’s lives by improving policy and practice relating to children, young people and their families/whānau. The Centre serves as an interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners, policy makers and students with an interest in advancing knowledge about children’s development, well-being and rights. The Centre's research, teaching and advocacy is underpinned by its commitment to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and how this is honoured within Aotearoa New Zealand.
