FICE International statement on Group Care for Children and Adolescents

 

Since its creation in 1948 under the auspices of UNESCO, FICE International (currently comprised of representatives from over 30 nations) has been working on developing and improving group care services for children and adolescents in need of out-of-home care. For almost 70 years, FICE has worked towards better fulfillment of the rights of children wherever in the world they may be. In order to fulfill this aim, FICE created initiatives for improving the professionalism of care workers (Grupper,1993; Van den Bergh, Knorth, Verheij & Lane, 2002), set up a Code of Ethics for residential care workers (Lane, 1998), and collaborated with ECOSOC and SOS International to create the Quality for Children Standards (2002). These quality standards are designed to support the fulfillment of the 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), especially while children and adolescents are living in out-of-home care facilities. Currently, FICE-International is working with the European initiative 'Moving Forward' geared to implementing the UN Guidelines for Alternative Care published in 2009.

The IJCYFS Review

 

Dear Colleagues,

We have recently created a new blog space that we’re very excited about and we hope you’ll take the time to check it out. The IJCYFS Review has been designed to offer an experimental space for lively, critical and topical conversations related to the fields of childhood, youth, and family studies. We especially encourage submissions that extend upon, or offer generative critiques of, articles published in the open access International Journal of Child Youth and Family Studies.
