The meeting was hosted by the Children’s Issues Centre at the University of Otago, on the invitation by its Director Anne B. Smith. Children’s Issues Centre gave invaluable assistance to the logistics of the meeting and had arranged for social events that allowed Childwatch members to meet local researchers and others involved in children’s issues. The meeting was combined with the first meeting of the 1999-2001 Advisory Board. Representatives from 18 Key Institutions participated (see below participants list). The Childwatch meetings were held in connection with the international conference: ‘Child and Family Policy Conference: Children’s Rights. National and International Perspectives’ organised by Children’s Issues Centre. Most of the Childwatch representatives participated in the conference, some of them as speakers. In addition to the professional importance of such a combination of meetings, it also allowed for combining travel budgets and sharing of costs between Childwatch and the Children’s Issues Centre.

The Center for Child Development (CCD) was established in September of 1991 with the concern for children, youth, families and school. One of our major emphases is on the understanding of socialization of children in Chinese societies as well as cross-cultural studies of child development in the Asian-Pacific regions. Inter-disciplinary research and training programs is a distinctive feature of the Center. We believe that the common interest in children's well-being among various disciplines will enable the integration of strengths from areas of psychology, education, sociology, social work, communications, art, music and others in finding innovative approaches for the betterment of children and of the society in the long run.

Residential Care of Children fills major gaps in knowledge about residential care of children, and is sure to inform ongoing debates within and between nations about the appropriate use of such institutions. Each "case study" chapter provides a rich description of the development, current status, and future of residential care in countries from Brazil to Botswana. Chapters describe how residential care is defined in the country in question, how it has evolved over time, including its history, trends over time, and any "landmark" events in the history of residential care.

Thematic groups consist of researchers from different regions that work together to identify and investigate major questions of global significance in the lives of children. Thematic groups link local, regional and national research efforts and academic work to policy and practice. The results of the work in these groups have the potential to improve the international research based knowledge, practice and policy on children’s issues. The Board and the Key Institutions are continually assessing global trends in order to initiate study groups on the most crucial issues.
