Counting Children In! Child Indicators: Research, Theory, Policy and Practice
Join ISCI for our second conference, for dynamic and productive dialogue around concepts of child indicators and child well-being. We will also focus on developing a structure for collaboration and communication among diverse stakeholders, helping to bridge research, theory, policy, and practice.
The ISCI conference Counting Children In! Child Indicators: Research, Theory, Policy and Practice is organized by the International Society for Child Indicators (ISCI) and the Social Justice and Social Change Research Centre at the Univeristy of Western Sydney, Australia.
The themes which will structure the conference are:
- Theoretical, conceptual and empirical issues in the development of child indicators
- Measurement issues at levels of individual, family, community and globally
- Diversity as a challenge to the construction and implementation of indicators.
There will be expert speakers from a range of backgrounds, contributed paper streams, and opportunities for dialogue and networking.
The deadline for the call for abstracts is 30 April 2009. See conference web site for more information.
A symposium on children in research is organized one day before the conference. Read more about this event.
