Our conference theme is "Protecting Children in a Changing World” and the sub-themes are:
Prevention of child abuse and neglect through early and sustained involvement
Interventions and programmes for children and families experiencing adversity
Addressing children’s rights and participation
Reforms in child protection and welfare policy
Children in out of home care
Building the evidence base
Dublin is a vibrant and modern capital city with a unique literary, cultural and historical legacy. The city is compact and easy to explore for visitors and is also close to stunning natural scenery and historic sites in nearby counties. Dublin is well served by direct flights from dozens of European cities.
We look forward to welcoming you to Dublin in September 2013.
