Free text Description of the first phase of a project in Ecuador whose long-term aims are to reduce institutionalization of children - articles include: analysis of the problem of abandonment and its causes; the substitute family system and how it is used and monitored; changing attitudes towards the minor in the light of the Convention on the Rights of the Child - the child as a subject rather than the object of rights. Filed with this publication: report on the first national seminar on alternative systems of care for institutionalized children.
