Expert Pool and Think Tank
The World Vision Institute for Research and Development (WV Institute) was founded in 2009. Its idea is to understand World Vision as a learning organization, which tries to integrate academical knowledge to its working processes.
The Institute focuses on research with and about children. Its main focus is Child well being. Within that, especially the participation of children plays a big role, as it is a main pillar of the UN-Child Rights Convention.
The World Vision Institute considers itself to be an expert pool with high practical relevance.
