Coram International has a team of dedicated socio-legal researchers who are experts in conducting qualitative and quantitative social research. Many of our projects begin by conducting both in-country and desk based research, analysing the current situation, systems, laws, policies and practices. Our research specifically includes situation analyses, gap analyses, analysing trends, identifying barriers and bottlenecks.

Our research is grounded in a human rights based approach in line with international standards including the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child and its Protocols, the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the UN Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.

The methodological approach our consultancy team takes is unique to each project and location in order to best collect reliable and robust data. Please see our other pages for:

Coram International is currently undertaking research for UNICEF Cambodia, which aims to build a solid knowledge-base on the different forms of community-based alternative care practices, including Pagoda-based care.
