Child Participation

We all know that child participation is one of the four principles of the UN Convention on the Right of the Child and that it is instrumental to achieve the realization of all children’s rights. It has also been identified as a key procedure to safeguard that policies are taking into account the best interest of the child (see per UN General Comment No. 14). While it is so central to our goal of putting an end to the exploitation of children, ensuring meaningful participation still remains a challenge for all stakeholders working towards the achievement of SDG target 8.7.
