Once a year in October, the International Institute for the Rights of the Child (IDE) brings together specialists from different disciplines, authorities from different levels, as well as students and field-workers around an issue relative to children’s rights, on the occasion of a large-scale international seminar.
United Nations actors, representatives from governments, the private sector and from associations reflect together on the best possible actions to take faced with an issue such as, for example, sexual tourism implicating children (2013), Child Rights and the Business Sector (2012) or the impact of climate change on children (2011). Workshops are paired with conferences and recommendations are put forth at the close of the week-long seminar.
The International Seminar in Sion is a flagship event among the IDE’s awareness-raising activities.
