Centre for Children in Vulnerable Situations | CCVS

CCVS | Centre for Children in Vulnerable SituationsCentre for Children in Vulnerable Situations (CCVS) is an interuniversity research centre (Ghent University, KULeuven and Vrije Universiteit Brussel), aiming at promoting the psychosocial wellbeing of children living in vulnerable situations in Southern countries. Within a context-oriented framework, three closely related pillars of activities are central: research (e.g. studies on war-affected children, victims of sexual violence, former child soldiers, street children, child labourers - in different countries, including Eastern Congo, Northern Uganda, India, Palestine and Bolivia); support for children and youth and their contexts (Eastern Congo and Northern Uganda), and, thirdly, a wide dissemination of our findings and experiences.
