Under the auspices of The University of the West Indies, The Sir Arthur Lewis Institute of Social and Economic Studies (SALISES) in partnership with the Institute of International Relations (IIR), the Caribbean Child Rights Observatory Network (CCRON) and the Institute for Gender and Development Studies (IGDS) will be hosting the 13th Annual Caribbean Child Research Conference under the theme: “Leaving No Child Behind: the 2030 Agenda” in Trinidad and Tobago during November 15-16, 2018.
For the past twelve (12) tears, the Caribbean Child Research Conference (CCRC) has been held annually in Jamaica. In 2018, the annual conference will be convened in Trinidad and Tobago. Accordingly, Trinidad and Tobago will be hosting this conference for the first time and will be the first country to have hosted this conference other than Jamaica. The significance placed on the rights and well-being of children and youth in international sustainable development discourses renders this to be a significant opportunity for stakeholders in Trinidad and Tobago to demonstrate their commitment to promoting and reinforcing progressive agendas for future generations of Caribbean adults. The conference is unique insofar as it presents an opportunity for children and adults to examine the status of children and child rights in the Caribbean and reflect upon the future implications of current experiences and actions though with remedial lenses. In essence, the conference is the only forum that presents adults and children with an equal voice on matters pertaining to the rights and well-being of children in the Caribbean.
