CSC has now published its major 2011 report 'State of the World's Street Children: Research', which finds that research into street children is fragmented and that, when available, is not being used adequately to inform interventions and government policies. It also finds that whilst street children are starting to be consulted about the policies and interventions that affect them, this is not happening often enough.

One of the key recommendations of the report is the creation of a dedicated, sustainable resource where existing research literature can be collected and held, which can be accessed by all those who have an interest. 

CSC is committed to making this research 'hub' a reality. Such a resource will facilitate real 'joined-up thinking' in order to ensure street children are involved at every level in matters that affect them.
