Redd Barnas Norwegianprogram monitor the fulfilment of children’s rights in Norway, and highlights the situatuion of children who are in a vulnerable and exposted situation. We document the situation of children, develop and spread new knowledge and engaged in political advocacy. An important part of the knowledge and documentation we need for the work we pick from project implemented in cooperation with partners.

We wish both Research Projects and studies and operational Projects (for example: testing Methods, surveys, processes With children ect.) related to issues pertaining children’s rights and position in Norway.

We are particularly interested in project ideas related to the following topics:

  • Asylum and refugee children
  • Violence and abuse against children, including online abuse
  • Trafficking children
  • Integration
  • Child welfare
  • Child poverty and social exclusion
  • Inclusion and solidarity in schools
  • Children’s participation
  • Other groups of children who do not get their rights / children’s rights in general
  • Volunteering

If anyone has great project ideas within other topics related to the situation of children and rights in Norway to let us know that too.

For that we will jointly make time to develop an application up to the deadline, we would like to initially have a sketch of 1-2 pages briefly describing project idea and objective. Project outlines submitted by e-mail to  stina.eiet.hamberg@reddbarna.no. Questions can be sent to the same mail adress.
