CSS Research-into-Action Briefs -- Need Volunteer Editors

Posted Aug 06th 2018

With support from C&A Foundation and C&A, Save the Children has initiated a series of Research-into-Action Briefs (R2A briefs), which are concise literature reviews on topics selected by practitioners. The R2A briefs are for child-centred risk reduction and school safety practitioners to support capacity development, and evidence-based program design and implementation. We hope other GADRRRES members contribute to the growing R2A series. To ensure research quality and GADRRRES leadership, we would like to propose an editorial committee of 4-5 people to take this series forward.  If you are interested, please contact Kate McFarlane by 20 August: kate.mcfarlane@savethechildren.org.au.
