The International Society for Child Indicators


In 1996, approximately 35 experts from 17 countries met in Jerusalem, Israel for the first international workshop on “Measuring and Monitoring Children’s Well-Being: Beyond Survival”. The foundation for ISCI was laid at this workshop, where the core group of ISCI founders met.

Afterwards, the Jerusalem workshop developed into a multi-national project on “Measuring and Monitoring Children’s Well-Being", with some 200 participants from more than 30 countries participating in the project workshops and meetings.

In 2005, the Childhood Conference was held in Oslo, Norwayand. this was led to the establishment of the ISCI society. In late 2005, with the support of the AECF, we convened the founding standing committee meeting of ISCI and the ISCI was formally established in 2006.

In 2007, our first inaugural conference was held in Chicago.
