Through regional networking, the Key Institutions and other organizations are addressing child research issues of specific importance for that particular region. The regional context offers a relevant platform for capacity building and establishing links to national and regional institutions with influence on child rights policies. Childwatch International has established networks in Africa South of Sahara, Asia and the Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean and Middle East and North Africa.
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.
