Dear colleagues, At the Children's Rights Centre, University of Ghent, Belgium, we are organising the International Interdisciplinary Course on Children' Rights again this year. Organised for the first time in 1996, the course took place during five consecutive years (1996-2000). Since then it has been evaluated and this year, thanks to renewed funding, we are running the course again (11-18th of December 2003). The course is a specialised course, dealing with the concept of children's rights and is based on empirical, practical and academic knowledge accumulated in this field. It provides extensive basic information and in-depth knowledge on the origins, motives and legitimisation, strategies and main trends in the field of children's rights. Evidently, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and its implementation feature largely in the programme. The course consists of a mixture of lectures with time for discussion and questions, workshops and a number of informal sessions, which enable participants to organise their own discussion groups around specific topics or individual projects. The practical arrangements of the course are outlined below. Yours sincerely, Kathy Vlieghe and Arabella Weyts Children's Rights Centre, University of Ghent Henri Dunantlaan 2, B-9000 Ghent Telephone number: Kathy: + 32 9 264 6285; Arabella: + 32 9 264 9100 Fax number: + 32 264 64 93 E-mail: Kathleen.Vlieghe@Ugent.be Arabella.Weyts@Ugent.be ---- INTERNATIONAL INTERDISCIPLINARY COURSE ON CHILDREN'S RIGHTS Date: 11-18 December 2003 Level: Professionals working in the area of child welfare in a context of children's rights on a national or international level.
