The Report features the activities realized by the international network, including the 34th FICE Congress in Israel in October 2019, the Federal Council in Bucharest in April 2019, the activities of the FICE African Network and the FICE European Network. Further, the report provides information about the projects and activities realized by the members of FICE International in more than 20 countries around the world.
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.Read more about FICE International statement on Group Care for Children and Adolescents

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.Read more about The IJCYFS Review
