Training Course for Young Latin American Researchers
A training course for young Latin American researchers was organized in Colombia in November 2007. This was part of a one year program consisting of three phases. The training is focusing thematically on children's participation.
- To strengthen the research capacity of child-centred institutions.
- To create practical options for joint research surrounding the central themes identified in the 2006 Mexico conference 3rd Childwatch International Latin American and the Caribbean Conference Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana. The themes included; migrations, movements and displacements; early childhood; poverty, marginality, violence; child and youth participation and models of political socialising.
- To promote the exchange of knowledge and intervention practices between the key institutions of CWI.
- To increase collectively the production of knowledge regarding child participation through the development of joint projects between countries.
The diploma was aimed at junior researchers, both of member institutions and non-member institutions, with participation of a few senior researchers with the aim to strengthen and expand the Latin American network.
