More than a quarter of the world’s children live in countries affected by crises, including those caused by conflict and climate breakdown. These children face the risk – and often, reality – of violence, exploitation, and neglect. They and their families are often left to deal with mental health challenges and other consequences that could last a lifetime.
The Global Parenting Initiative and Parenting for Lifelong Health team at the University of Oxford have been working with UN agencies and other organisations to develop open-source, evidence-based parenting resources to support families affected by crises, which have been translated into over 30 languages and benefited over 16 million people, including in Pakistan, Sudan, Syria, Sudan, Turkey, and Ukraine.
Join our team and a panel of experts at the upcoming Oxford Inside Out 2023 (19-21 September) for an in-person panel discussion titled “Collaborating for Children in Crisis: Unlocking Opportunities for Greater Impact”. The discussion will explore how we can improve the way we collaborate with policymakers and affected communities to support families and vulnerable children in crisis.
Sitting on our panel to explore the opportunities, challenges, technicalities, and recommendations for collaborating to support children affected by crises will be experts from the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons in Nigeria, and Karachi Relief Trust in Pakistan.
Please note that this is an in-person event.
