Childwatch International Consultancies
Childwatch International initiated the consultancy arrangement in 2001 to strengthen its role in capacity building between insitutitions within the network. The mission of the Childwatch International consultancy is to strenghten the capacity of child research within the Key Institutions of the network.
A consultancy is set up based on an articulated wish from a Key Institution, and a consultant from within the network will be appointed. The tasks of a consultant include discussing specific needs and potentials of the visited institution; being a resource in capacity building; facilitating cooperation between international partners; making relevant recommendations to the Key Institution visited. A document outlining the consultancies is available in here.
The arrangement of consultancies has resulted in several collaborative research and training projects between Key Institutions of the network as well as the development of regional networks.
