It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate to International Conference of Kampala.

In recent years, children and youth have become increasingly vulnerable in different parts of Eastern Africa as a result of conflict and post-conflict situations, global and local health and socio-economic situations. The main aim of the conference is to present on-going research which dwells on childhood, adolescence and early adulthood and explores issues of vulnerability and violence and their perceptions. After decades of government and civil society involvement around orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs), often considered as victims, our knowledge remains fragmentary. Presentations will analyse current trends and changes in the situations of children and youth, study family systems of childcare, education and support, and explore relevant public policies and social action. Anthropological and historical approaches will bring out local variations and different temporalities in order to shift perspectives to understand today’s social issues. Participants will be invited to share their work and experiences, open up new perspectives to contribute to a better understanding of these complex situations. Wider scientific exchanges are expected to stem from this meeting.

The Conference will start Monday morning at 8.30pm at the Hotel International. Kindly confirm you attendance to any panel (or all). The program and the poster are availablehere. If you need further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Please transfer these informations to your network.

We are looking forward in meeting you.

Best Regards,

The Organizing Committee
