New briefing - Barriers and solutions to using children's rights approaches in policy
Over the last few months, we have been conducting research to explore the barriers and solutions to using a children’s rights approach to policy. Our new briefing outlines the findings and suggests some potential solutions for how to embed a children’s rights approach to policy making across your organisation and the Government.
This briefing is part of a three year project funded by The Baring Foundation to build the capacity of the voluntary sector to use children’s rights arguments in their policy and public affairs work. As part of the research, we interviewed 16 people, which included a mixture of children’s and human rights policy and legal experts from across the UK and Europe, policy experts from large children’s charities and the homelessness and mental health sectors. We then tested our findings at a roundtable event with 22 individuals.
