|Samenvatting||The author, as Senior Programme Specialist, has coordinated a series of tracer studies for the Bernard van Leer Foundation since 1998. These studies have all set out to follow the footsteps of former participants in early childhood development (ECD) programmes to find out what has happened to them five or more years after participation. In this article, she sets out the Foundation’s reasons for launching the series. Drawing on examples from the studies and on discussions during the five-day Following Footsteps tracer studies workshop in April 2002 in Kingston, Jamaica, she then reflects on how these tracer studies were set up and implemented and on how the resulting data were analysed. Finally, she introduces some of the findings, showing how these can affect both practice and policy.|
