Childhood and Social institutions students, Stacey Martin and Leah Hepburn, were selected to take the “Children at the Heart of Human Rights” summer school course at the University of Geneva. The students are photographed here on their first day of attending the Geneva Summer School.

The summer school is a unique opportunity for students and young professionals to engage with leading figures in the children’s rights movement. Additionally, the students will have the opportunity to visit the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and the Committee on the Rights of the Child. 

Geneva Summer School is an acclaimed academic and professional preparation experience for students interested in children’s rights, and international human rights organizations. The course runs from June 6 to 17, 2016, where the students explore current issues in the international debate on children’s rights studies and policies.

The CSI program at King's is the only interdisciplinary program of its kind in Canada. This unique program explores the status of children and childhood in social institutions - in Canada and internationally.
