Ipce is a forum for people who are engaged in academic discussion about the understanding and emancipation of mutual relationships between children or adolescents and adults.

In this context, these relationships are intended to be viewed from an unbiased, non-judgmental perspective and in relation to the human rights of both the young and adult partners.

Ipce meets once every one or two years in a different country, publishes a newsletter and a web site, co-ordinates the (electronic) exchange of texts and keeps an archive of specific written publications.


The character of the Ipce Newsletter has gradually changed. One upon a time, we had our paper Newsletters, sent by post mail. Then came the electronic Newsletter, number 10 now. Initially, the electronic Newsletters were put in Html and sent to the web. It appeared that it were long files, long downloads and difficult searches for an article. In the course of time, the articles are put in the Library of the Ipce web site; the Newsletters only had links to the articles. Only the internal Ipce issues kept being in the Newsletters. Now, number E(lectronic) 10, has only the table of content with links to the articles and this introduction in the web version of this Newsletter.

Another change is that new articles now directly go to the Ipce web site. Recently, an update with about 80 files took place and with the sending of this Newsletters other files will are added. So, factually, the page "What is new"? is the ‘new newsletter’. This Newsletter gives only a sharp selection of the articles in one language, whilst the web site has four languages now.

Most members are on line now; only ten Newsletters are sent on paper by post mail. I would ask these ten members to go on line or to the local library, university or Internet café and visit the Ipce web site. Doing so, the Newsletter can disappear unless there is internal Ipce news and the paper version can disappear. Note, that it is a lot of work to make two versions of each Newsletter; especially the paper version of is asks a lot of work and time… for ten members only.

In this Newsletter, you will find new Statements and articles about the Brongersma’s archive case in The Netherlands. The second section gives articles on rethinking boyhood. The third section gives articles written by Ipce members. The usual end is the documentation service. Note that these lists no longer mention the articles in the Newsletter and the library; one can find these easily in the "What is new?" page and in the indexes and the register that is added to the library.

The Ipce web site, by the way, has about 125 visitors each day. If you have a look at a new web site at < [Disappeared]  >, you will see that the Ipce web is number one in the top 100 of sites that will be made at that web site. Many other web sites mention the Ipce web. I even have seen a French web site that said the Ipce web was ‘well-thought and good-balanced’ or French words like these.

Well, let’s go on, if we do our work ‘well-thought and good-balanced’ and let’s hope that the 125 visitors of each day will appreciate the information they get and that they will work with these information.

Your secretary and webmaster,
