PIA Press Release

Unicef, PIDS jointly sponsor seminar series on children's rights

Manila (19 February) -- The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) are jointly sponsoring a series of seminars under the theme "Public Policies and the Rights of Children."

The third of this seminar series is titled "The Effect of Parent's Migration on the Rights of Children L eft B ehind" and will be held on 21 February 2008 from 9:00 a.m. to 12: 00 noon at the C.P. Romulo Hall, 106 Amorsolo St., NEDA-Makati B ldg., L egaspi Village, Makati City.

The primary aim of the seminar series is to focus on policy analysis, advocacy and partnership for children's rights as areas where key action at the national, regional, local and community levels is required to advance the realization of the rights of children.

The third seminar will have Ms. Rosemarie Edillon, Vice President and Executive Director at the Asian-Pacific Policy Center, as main presenter who will talk about the prevailing conditions of children left behind by parent/s working overseas. The study aims to determine the reconfigured roles and lines of responsibilities of parents who go overseas and their consequential effects on children's rights. Some recommendations to mitigate possible undesirable effects of migration on children will be provided toward the end of the presentation.

In this regard, we would like to solicit your presence in the seminar and invite you to join the discussions after the presentation. We are sure that your participation will further enlighten the deliberations on issues that may affect children in the Philippines.

We look forward to your presence and active participation. For your reference, we are attaching here the tentative program for the said forum. You may reach us through telephone numbers 893-5705 (c/o Necy) and 892-4059 (c/o Gizelle), fax number 893-9589 or e-mail address: (PIDS, PIA) [top]
