With the aim of providing field staff and those working in development with access to some of the best thinking on key issues affecting children, UNICEF's Innocenti Research Centre launches ResearchWatch.
ResearchWatch (RW) will bring some of the best thinkers to be table on children’s research. It does so in a digestible, stimulating and bite-size format.
Each issue will be dedicated to a theme – the first is on ECD, timed in support of the new report in The Lancet.
RW has three parts:
(i) Commentary – where the latest research/thinking in the chosen area is captured, and then analysed by an expert.
(ii) 'Look out for' - a leading researcher will discuss their latest/forthcoming research project.
(iii) 'The Debate' - a videoed, studio debate. Here we launch with: Nobel laureate Professor James Heckman, editor in chief of The Lancet, Richard Horton, and UNICEF’s Chief of ECD Dr Nurper Ulkuer.
We hope this is useful to you, and please do share feedback and ideas.
