The perspectives on the African child are shaped by a multiplicity of factors that include both the worldview of the researchers, donor priorities and pressures, as well as what will "sell" better i peer review journals. This implies a real concern with what is going on in terms of research on child issues in Afirca in order to avoid generalisations and particularising the African children in ways that portray them in an unfavourable light. Childwatch International and CODESRIA joined forces and invited scholars from 13 countries in Africa to meet and discuss issues related to child research in Africa, in November 2006. The papers presented and discussed at the colloquium have finally been released as a CODESRIA Monograph.
