INVITATION by FICE ROMANIA: INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM on “Children – victims of poverty”

FICE-Romania, primarily focused on children's rights, found, especially in recent years, a deterioration of economic status of the population, which has influenced and continues to negatively influence child development in the Romanian society, both in urban as in rural areas.

Through numerous studies, analyses and research carried out in partnership with local communities, NGOs involved in this field, schools, universities, directorates of child's welfare, healthcare institutions, research institutes etc., FICE Romania reached the conclusion of the necessity of an approach on the phenomenon of poverty and its impact on younger generation in an International Symposium called ”Children-victims of poverty”. This event will be held on the 8th of October 2011, in Bucharest, in cooperation with the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences, University of Bucharest, and other prestigious institutions.

FICE-INTER BOOKS

 

FICE is back into publishing!

 

We are expecting to publish the first of a series of FICE-International books in April 2007 in partnership with Trentham Books. Because so many FICE members are involved in extrafamilial care, that will be the subject of the first book, being prepared under the title :

 

RESIDENTIAL CHILD CARE AND ITS ALTERNATIVES

– international perspectives

 

Edited by Friedhelm Peters

 

Part One discusses policies, theory and societal developments  and Part Two describes professional developments, special projects or concrete initiatives in child care. There are contributions from Canada, England, Finland, Germany, Israel, the Netherlands and Slovenia. The Contents are attached.

 

This book is essential reading for everyone who works directly with children and young people who require care outside their families. It will also be of value to their managers, and to lecturers and researchers, inspectors, government and NGO officials and others concerned about the care of children.

 

ISBN 978 1 85856 409 8                    184 pages  234 x 156mm            Price £17.99

 

And there will be more!

 

It is intended that this will be the first of a series of books, and additional themes are being planned. Contributions will be welcomed from FICE members and contacts. The books will be published in English.

 

FICE will be 60 in 2008!

 

A History of FICE was published for its 40th Anniversary, and a revised and updated History is being prepared, for publication at the Helsinki Congress in 2008.
