Child Protection in the Former Soviet States

Associate Professor Ilze Earner served as co-organizer and opening speaker at an international conference on the development of child protection systems in the post-Soviet states held in Moscow. The conference brought together for the first time representatives from thirteen former Soviet states to discuss developments in child protection policy, program and practice that have occurred since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Presentations were made by academics, practitioners, researchers and policy makers from Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Estonia, Kazakhstan, Kryrgyzstan, Latvia, Moldova, Russian Federation, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. The conference proceedings will be published later this year by Springer International.
