Welcome to the Joint Learning Initiative on Children and Ethnic Diversity (JLICED). We are a global and inter-disciplinary network of leading researchers, policy-makers and practitioners who are committed to reducing racial and ethnic divisions and conflicts and building socially inclusive and respectful communities through the promotion of effective early childhood programs.

Through the coordinated activities of six Learning Groups we aim to share and disseminate existing expertise and knowledge as well as work in partnership with local organizations and researchers to support the development of new and innovative early childhood programs in regions characterized by divisions and/or conflicts.

Please explore our website to find out more about the JLICED and the work that we do. If you would like more information then please do not hesitate to contact us.
