About the ICEB Journal
On March 14th, 2014, Udayan Care launched a bi- annual academic journal 'Institutionalised Children: Explorations and Beyond' (ICEB), to discuss the state of care of children in institutional and alternative care. The journals’ regional focus is on the eight South Asian countries - Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The 1st issue of the journal was released at the seminar 'Institutionalised Children: Seminar on Standards of Care and Mental Health" at Amity University, NCR, India, organised by Udayan Care with a host of partners and sponsors. So far 8 issues of the journal have been released and we are now ready to release the ninth issue, Vol. 5, No. 1, during the 3rd BICON in March, 2018. We are also currently accepting manuscripts for the September, 2018, Special Edition focusing on Aftercare.
To make available a platform for consistent sharing of information, knowledge enhancement and the development of a dialogue and debate amongst professionals, policy makers, and volunteers working for children in institutional and other alternate care, about best practices, research findings and studies, legislation, jurisprudence and case law, in relation to such children's mental health, social development, care and upbringing in alternative modes of care in South Asian countries.
