Conference – Strengthening child protection systems

Guillaume Landry, the IBCR’s director-general will give a lecture about strengthening child protection systems on the Université de Montréal campus on 11th February 2020. Invited by the UNICEF sur le campus UdeM student association, his presentation will mainly focus on lessons learned from the practice of children’s Rights protection.

As children are recognized as full-fledged subjects of law today, they are entitled to the right to express themselves, to learn, to live free from violence, abuse and neglect. Thus, this event aims to raise awareness in the academic community on the promotion of these Rights, and to map the significant changes since the creation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989.

Admission is free and we are looking forward to seeing you there ! 

Date: Tuesday 11th February 2020, from 4 to 6 p.m.

Location: Pavillon de l’Aménagement, 2940 chemin de la Côte-Sainte-Catherine, Montreal
