University of Houston
The University of Houston and Swansea University in Wales will be hosting a binational conference to bring together practitioners, attorneys, advocates, researchers, and students in both countries to discuss challenges faced by immigrant, refugee, asylee, and trafficked children and youth. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) will serve as the conference’s organizing framework. Conference speakers and panelists will examine how the UNCRC’s human rights lens can inform practice, policy, and research impacting children who have been displaced from their home countries.
