BEARR Conference

30th October 2010

Dear All,

Please see below email details of the BEARR Trust Annual Conference on 19
November, which this year is on the theme of "Young People in Trouble".
This covers all aspects of teenage and youth behaviour which are likely to
bring young people up against the law, how they are handled by the
judicial system, and what can be done by NGOs and others to deal with,
deflect or mitigate such behaviour.

Keynote speakers are Dr Mary McAuley (King's, London) and Dr Boris
Altschuler (Rights of the Child, Moscow). Other contributors come from
Ukraine, Georgia, Armenia and Russia.

The programme is below, together with the booking form. Please book as
soon as possible to secure your place. And pass on this information to
anyone you know who might be interested.

The programme and booking form are also available on the BEARR website at
http://www.bearr.org/en/event/conf/2010.

The September 2010 issue of the BEARR Newsletter is also now available at
http://www.bearr.org/en/newsletter/55/September_2010. This has a feature
on The Elderly in the CIS; several articles focusing on the Caucasus
republics; and numerous reports of projects funded through the BEARR Small
Grants Scheme.

We look forward to seeing you on 19 November.

Best wishes,
Renate Wright
