BULLETIN Nº 1 - SHAPING NEW POLICIES FOR CHILDREN IN THE SITUATION OF THE STREETS IN RIO DE JANEIRO AND OTHER CITIES
A project of the International Center for Research and Policy on Childhood at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (CIESPI at PUC Rio)
This is the first newsletter of an exciting new project at CIESPI. We wish to share the progress of the project with our many partners and colleagues and we invite your comments on the work. CIESPI facilitates broad dialogue to improve policies for children in the situation of the streets2 in Rio de Janeiro.
In July 2008, CIESPI began a new project to inform and assist the work of the Rio de Janeiro Council on the Rights of Children and Youth as the Council works to approve a formal written policy to improve services for children on the streets. The project is part of one of CIESPI’s major areas of inquiry: Children, Youth, Poverty and Inequality: A Challenge to Human Rights. April 2009.
