The ISPCAN Global Institute is a workshop that will focus on the present international crisis of migrant and refugee children and their families, whose movement across Eastern to Western Europe, from Northern Africa to Europe, from North and Central Africa to Southern African countries, and across US borders has caused enormous stress to child protection services in the receiving countries. Many migrant families are fleeing war, conflict and poverty. The objectives of the global institute are :

-          To understand the challenges facing migrant and refugee families and children;

-          To identify and define appropriate trauma-informed therapeutic responses to the challenges and dilemmas faced by migrant and refugee families, children and communities.

The challenges extend to all aspects of child protection including policy, strategy and responsive programmes and their implementation and those who work with migrant and refugee programmes will be informed by experts who work with these populations and also have the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience with colleagues.
