Child Rights' Governance

Child Rights Governance (CRG) sets out two main objectives: Strengthen state institutions and mechanisms for the implementation and monitoring of children’s rights; and increase awareness and capacity among civil society and children to promote children’s rights and hold duty bearers to account.

This short report presents a range of case studies that show how work on CRG can hold governments to account, influence budgets, empower children, strengthen civil society, and improve national legal systems. These are changes that can make an important difference to millions of children’s lives – changing the way resources are used, making legal systems more child friendly, highlighting the issues that children themselves care about, and demanding more action from governments.  Source:
