The MACR (originally called EMCR - European Master in Childhood Studies and Children's Rights) was established in cooperation with six West and East European Universities and the NGO, Save the Children within a project co-funded by the European Commission (2005-2008). Since autumn 2007, it is being offered at the Free University Berlin.
From 2016 on, all partner universities have become members in the Children’s Rights European Academic Network. The two former networks
were merged in this newly established network in the beginning of 2016.

The Institute for International Studies in Childhood and Youth (ISCY) aims at promoting emancipatory and intercultural learning and action in a globalising world. Globalisation is hereby viewed as a challenge that needs to be dealt with actively. The rapidly developing intrenationalisation and globalisation processes have to find consideration in the design of eduactional offers. Intercultural competence and the ability to understand international coherences in their context are increasingly becoming key qualifications. More on the ISCY homepage.
