BICON 2021 logo

BICON is an inter-agency cooperation of 8 leading international NGOs focused on alternative care for children.

Since 2014, BICON has been a leading conference focussed on the rights of children and young people without parental care (CWPC).

The 4th Biennial International Conference on Alternative care for Children in Asia (BICON) took place over two days in December 2021.

The event was hosted online, with practitioners, policymakers, academics, and young people with lived experience of care coming together to discuss regional challenges, best practices, and emerging issues related to alternative care reform and children’s rights in Asia. More than 300 delegates from across the globe participated in a series of interactive workshops, plenaries and panel discussions - the final report features recommendations for action that reflect the discussions.
