Global Affairs Speaker Series | Dulce Castillo

In our next Global Affairs Speaker Series, Dulce Castillo, the Coordinator of the Inter-American Program on Child Participation by the Inter-American Children’s Institute, joins us for her talk “The Rights of Children and Adolescents.”

First-year student Jeremiah (Year 49/2024, Guyana) will also join Ms. Castillo to share his experience with the Child Correspondent Network.

The Inter-American Children’s Institute is the specialized organism of the Organization of American States on children and adolescents. The mission of the IIN is to contribute to the development of public policies which will ensure the promotion, protection, and enjoyment of child rights in OAS member States and promote the development of a culture of ownership within the context of strengthened democracy.

We are looking forward to seeing you on Zoom.
