Poverty and social exclusion affect children and adolescents in different ways than they do adults. The purpose of the conference is to make a concrete contribution, within the context of the SDGs, to understanding, defining, measuring, and addressing social inclusion among girls and boys living in poverty.
The organizers are especially interested in investigating how knowledge, information, data collection, measurement and monitoring can support strategies and innovations to prevent and effectively address the main drivers of poverty, exclusion and violence against children and adolescents. There will be a particular focus on gathering information about “invisible children”, who are not covered or counted in standard surveys. An effort will be made to conceptualize the issues in different social contexts, explain them in causal terms, and find feasible solutions within the timeframe of the SDGs’ targets to the problems that affect the realization of the rights of an unacceptable number of children globally, including in (mega) cities.
This call for papers is being issued within the scope of an international workshop organized by Equity for Children, CROP (University of Bergen, Norway) and SOS Children’s Villages. Supported by UNICEF, UNDP, Save the Children, the Global Coalition to End Child Poverty and ChildFund Alliance.
Submission deadline: June 1, 2018
