Welcome to the Children's Rights Academy

The Children’s Rights Academy brings together the continuing education programmes and activities of the University of Geneva’s Centre for Children's Rights Studies. The Children’s Rights Academy is convinced that advancing critical reflection, empirical knowledge and intellectual curiosity amongst children’s rights professionals significantly contributes to respecting children’s rights and values children’s positive contribution to society. To understand the growing complexity of children’s interconnected local and global lifeworlds and to allow the development of comprehensive policy responses, continuing education programmes and activities need to be firmly embedded with the interdisciplinary field of children’s rights studies and must establish strong connections with national and international academic and professional networks.
