The Latin American Partnership Program (2001-2004)
The Latin American Partnership Program (2001 - 2004) was a cooperation between the Childwatch International Key institutions CENDIF in Venezuela, CIESPI in Brazil and CINDE in Colombia. The Partnership elaborated a common platform for research collaboration on the Latin American continent within the theme of children growing up in contexts of poverty, marginalization and violence.
After 2004, the partnerhip and evolved into the study group Children Growing up in circumstances of Poverty and Marginalization. This is currently the research basis of a Latin American regional network with several partners both outside and inside of the Childwatch International Research Network.
The study group was coordinated by Norma Alicia del Río Lugo at the Centro de Documentación sobre Infancia at the Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana in Mexico City, Mexico.
