Judith Ennew (1944-2013)

Childwatch International regrets to relay the sad news that  former Childwatch member Judith Ennew, activist and researcher in children's rights since 1979,  died on Friday- 4th October 2013 in Kuala Lumpur.  

Judith Ennew was a member of Childwatch International and will be remembered for developing the Childwatch project Monitoring Children's Rights - Indicators for Children's Rights Project with Per Miljeteigs and the Childwatch project Children and Prostitution.

Judith gained a PhD in social anthropology (1978) at the University of Cambridge (UK). She  published widely and worked as an academic and advisor to organizations such as Anti-Slavery International  and UNICEF  in Latin America, Africa, South and South-East Asia and Eastern Europe on children's rights issues.

Her death represents a  loss to children and the large global network of friends, researchers and professionals committed to the work of promoting children's rights.
