Description

On November 3-4, 2015, the Forum on Investing in Young Children Globally of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, in partnership with the Open Society Foundations and the International Step by Step Association (ISSA), held a workshop to examine the science and economics of investing in the health, education, nutrition, and social protection of children at the margins of society. Over the course of the public workshop, individual participants sought to bring to the foreground a scientific perspective of children at the margins and explore how discrimination and social exclusion affect early development, focusing on vulnerable populations such as children living outside of family care; children from diverse ethnic and linguistic backgrounds such as Roma; children with developmental delays and disabilities; and refugee, immigrant, and migrant children.
