The Interdisciplinary Research Laboratory on the Rights of the Child (IRLRC) aims to create a national and international network of researchers and practitioners from various child-related disciplines. Discussion among the many specialists will result in a transfer of knowledge and information, practical on-the-ground benefits, and the development of future joint training and research opportunities between members of academia and front-line workers.
