Basic Introduction into Webinars AND Case Discussion

Date of webinar: 
11 Feb 2015
Stephanie Delaney, Judit Németh-Almási
Terre des hommes Regional Office

The first webinar offered by the Child Protection Hub aims at bringing together the partners of the project in the eight countries to test and explore the webinar platform, understand how it works, what functionalities are available - so that coordinators can help their colleagues in the future with such technical issues.

At the same time the session will feature Stephanie Delaney, experienced social work trainer and consultant, who will help a social worker in Kosovo with a specific case. Participants will have a chance to understand what 'case discussions' really mean, what value it brings to practitioners and how the protection of the  personal identity of people involved is ensured.

Join us and experience it live!

Refugee Children in Central Europe

Dear Trainers, I am not sure if you included the subject of refugee children in tommorow's webinar topic, however,

maybe we could discuss sometime about the protection of these children, not only according to UNHCR and UNICEF standards,

but according to reality and practice in each country of the region. Considering the high inlfux of refugees nowadays, every single aspect

of child protection becomes relevant - from the lack of vaccines in hospitals, lack of classrom spots and teachers to teach language

classes to non nationals, to lack of decent housing and food for families of these children. Evidence based data collection would also

be relevant, and most of the times governments say "we do take care", but the level and efficiency of that care is very far from any decent


I really appreciate the iniative of holding such webinars and of the free opportunity to participate, but I thinkthe time now requires

also more hands on reactions, from the social work professionals in the region. A regional conference, a call for regional efforst of advocacy

from professional organizations is each country of the region might be beneficial. Not everybody nowadays has it clear what is a refugee child

and how traumatised they might be, though most of us have genuine compassion and interest. People need to know HOW TO WORK with refugees

as it does not look like they are going to dissapear soon from our sight. I am sure they will not dissapear soon from our minds, especially

when children lives are lost. Thank you - you have my email address as I am registered to the webinar tomorrow

Dear Corina, 

Dear Corina, 
Thanks for your comments. Tomorrow at the webinar "Developing a Comparable Child Protection Index" we are not going to cover the migrants crisis unfortunately for a number of reasons. First of all, when the index was being developed, there was no refugee crisis, and the main purpose of this webinar is to present the index. Also, it is the key idea of the index that the countries are comparable. As you know, not all countries, covered by the index, are currently hosting refugees, so that would make it really difficult to compare them to each other. However, you are totally right highlighting this issue, and the ChildPact is looking into options on how to address this at later stages. Also, the ChildHub is very interested in developing more content on the subject and we already do. Please feel free to share you ideas and suggestions, we're open to discussions!
