International Research Network on Infants and Child Protection Systems

Pre-EUSARF network meeting minutes have now been posted


Twenty researchers and policymakers attended the IRNICP meeting in September at the University of Sussex, and participated in discussions following presentations from Australia, England, France, New Zealand, Portugal, Scotland, Spain, and the USA. 

The minutes of the business meeting, held during this event, are now available. Please note that we decided to develop five special interest groups on: 


Disparities in infant removals

Prenatal reporting

Effective interventions

Child protection systems

If you would like to join/lead one of these groups, please contact one of the Network organisers:
