CALL FOR PAPERS for the “2nd Conference on Child Protection – Working Towards a Safeguarding Policy for Children in Macau: from Theory to Practice” hosted by USJ on November 25-26, 2022.



Childhood is a crucial stage in human development and respecting the “best interest of the child” should be considered a primary social concern (United Nations Convention on the Rights of Children, 1990). Ensuring that children are happy and socially integrated is a precondition to promote social well-being and development. Still, many challenges exist today to the full protection of children, both regionally and globally.

This interdisciplinary conference aims to be a forum for scholars, practitioners, and decision makers, to connect and make meaningful contributions to knowledge and policy building on child protection.

This will be a two-day event co-organized by the Cradle of Hope Association, the University of Saint Joseph (USJ), the Department of Innovative Social Work of City University of Macau, and local NGOs. The first day will be dedicated to scholarly contributions. We welcome contributions from scholars, and Ph.D. or Master’s students, in the fields of Social Work, Psychology, Education, and other areas that focus on child welfare and protection. The second day will be dedicated to practitioners and associations working in this area and include presentations and workshops.

The organizing committee of the “2nd Child Protection Conference: Working Towards a Safeguarding Policy for Children in Macau: from Theory to Practice” welcomes you to submit your research to present at this event.
