Bridgetown, Barbados, 23 November 2022: The Caribbean Child Research Conference, now in its seventeenth year, is a landmark event in the region’s research calendar. This year’s theme is Leaving No Child Behind: The UN 2030 Agenda and the Convention on the Rights of the Child in a Post-COVID Environment.

How are our region’s children coping after the devastation wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic? How have they been affected socially, economically, educationally and in terms of their mental health? These questions will be explored in depth.

Day 1 (24 November) is reserved for adult researchers and on Day 2 (25 November) young people across the English-speaking Caribbean will share their thoughts, emotions and research analyses on what emerging from the pandemic means for them. The best presenters will win cash prizes.

Hon. Kirk Humphrey, Minister of People Empowerment and Elder Affairs in Barbados, will be giving remarks on Day 2.

The event is being hosted by the Sir Arthur Lewis Institute of Social and Economic Studies (SALISES), UWI, in partnership with UNICEF, Eastern Caribbean. It is also supported by the UWI School for Graduate Studies and Research and the Child Protection and Family Services Agency (CPFSA) in Jamaica.
