Innocenti convenes world experts in Florence to explore research and policy issues facing children

Cohort and Longitudinal Research

Symposium on Cohort and Longitudinal Research


©UNICEF/NYHQ2008-1549/Guiara - Child’s View- Laughing children run out of their classroom at recess in a primary school in Bangui, the capital.
