Here you can find background information like guidelines and others on how to design projects with a specific focus on child´s rights as well as the child´s rights approach.
Like human rights education, child rights education includes learning about rights, learning through rights (using rights as an organizing principle to change the culture of learning), and learning for rights (taking action to realize rights) in an overall context of learning as a right. Tool 3 of the Child Friendly Cities Toolkit for National Committees includes guiding questions for implementing the "child rights approach" to assess whether an intiative or project is proactively realizing child rights.
The Child Rights Index ranks countries that have ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child according to existing data and assesses whether and to what extent children's rights are respected worldwide.
The handbook serves as an introduction to child rights-based programmes. It deals with children's participation, child rights-based situation analysis and the application of child rights principles in the development of organisations and projects.
The Situation Analysis presented provides guidelines on how child-rights-based programmes can be planned and describes, among other things, how the assessment of child rights violations can be designed and who the rights holders are in programmes.
The Programme Accountability Guidance Pack brings together practical and tested ‘how-to’ guidance and training materials designed to help development and humanitarian workers put accountability into practice. The pack includes a DVD, with four films developed to improve understanding and facilitate discussions on programme accountability.
Various case-studies are laid out to provide background information about human rights mainstreaming as well as possible ways for implementation of the Human Rights Based Approach.
