The Child Protection Executive Education Course (CPEEC) offered by the Harvard FXB Center for Health and Human Rights is designed for mid-career professionals who are engaged in the protection of and response to children vulnerable to abuse, violence exploitation and neglect, whether working for an international organization, a local NGO, or a government agency. While the conditions facing children may vary—from displacement to labor, from abuse and neglect to early marriage - the integrated response needed for children’s protection, safety and supportive relationships remains constant. All children, including those facing violence, conflict, disruption and incarceration, have a right to health, education, justice and protection. A holistic response to the needs of children and families requires an integrated and multi-sectoral approach in which different state and civil-society partners act together in a seamless sys- tem of support. Developing and sustaining that system calls for interdisciplinary thinking, a deep understanding of child protection issues, together with effective leadership and negotiation skills.
Applications must be submitted as a cross-sectorial country team, with three (3) members per team. The preferred composition of the country team is one (1) government partners, one (1) international organization partner and one (1) local NGO partner.
