A Rights-Based Approach to Monitoring Children and Young People's Well-Being

Published on


This Foundation Report is the first in a Special Report Series addressing the well-being of children and youth in Ireland and Northern Ireland. The Report corresponds with three key UNESCO aims: to strengthen awareness of human rights; to act as a catalyst for regional and national action in human rights; and to foster co-operation with a range of stakeholders and networks working with, or on behalf of, children and youth. The objectives of the series are: - to focus on a topical issue considered to affect the well-being of children and youth; - to examine the impact of selected policy and practice interventions on children’s rights and well-being; - to gain an understanding of processes of implementation; - to share learning that will enable duty bearers to better meet their commitments to children’s rights and improved well-being; - to share learning that will enable rights holders to claim their rights.
