Posted By: • January 22nd, 2017

The RISE Learning Network is inviting contributions from professionals around the world working on projects and programmes that aim at the recovery and reintegration of children affected by sexual exploitation and other forms of violence and abuse.

The primary aims of this blog initiative are:

1) to provide a forum for a diverse set of voices to share their expertise and research in the field of child recovery and reintegration,

2) to create a process for the dissemination of knowledge on recovery and reintegration approaches,

3) to contribute to the systematisation of practices in the field, and

4) to help build a vibrant global  community of learning.

We will consider different types of articles for publication on the Blog. The different article types could include but are not limited to: book reviews, scholarly articles, literature reviews, editorials, interviews, reflections on organisational practices, learning from conferences.

The author of the article agrees that the work being submitted does not infringe upon any copyright or intellectual property laws. All submitted articles will be screened by the RISE Coordinating team to determine the suitability and relevance of the article topic for the blog. Also, the RISE team reserves the right to edit and revise accepted submissions as appropriate, which will be communicated to the author.
