Children's Rights Knowledge Centre (KeKi)

KeKi | Kenniscentrum Kinderrechten vzwThe Children's Rights Knowledge Centre (KeKi) aims to gather, make available, disseminate and stimulate knowledge about children's rights. Since the start up in 2010, a interuniversity platform is the basis of KeKi. The platform has 5 members: the university of Antwerp (Universiteit Antwerpen), University of Brussels (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), University of Ghent (Universiteit Gent), University college of Ghent (Hogeschool Gent) and the University of Leuven (KU Leuven). The decree of a 'new youth- and children's rights policy' (2012) gives the opportunity to KeKi to be more than a scientific organisation. We are foremost the bridge between scientifically research, policies and practices about children's rights. KeKi understands building a bridge as (1) building scientifically expertise about children's rights (for example: through our online database), (2) communicating of scientifically results in user friendly tools and education (for example: Research On Stage), (3) advising and supporting the Flemish youth- and children's policy and non-profit organisations (for example: through writing policy-advises based on scientifically research).
