About the Forum

The First Russian-American Child Welfare Forum (RAF) was held at Lake Baikal in the Republic of Buryatia, Russia, August 1-6, 2011. This Forum was initiated by Russian specialists working as part of the Child Protection Sub-Working Group under Presidents Obama and Medvedevs Bilateral Presidential Commissions Civil Society Working Group.

The Forum is designed to be an annual event pairing local child welfare service providers with leading Russian and American specialists to tackle the most serious issues facing the child protection and welfare field today.
