*New* Child Rights-Based Approaches - June 2012

*New* Child Rights-Based Approaches

11-13 June 2012

This course provides participants with a clear understanding of how to use a child rights-based approach to develop and implement projects and programmes that contribute to improvements in children’s enjoyment of their rights to participation, protection, survival and development. The course will cover a range of areas including understanding childhoods, human rights and children’s rights principles and provisions, using UN Conventions to achieve change for children, understanding and applying a human rights-based approach to development in different contexts and cultural settings and identifying ways in which participants and their organisations can implement child rights in their own work practices.

Objectives of the course

By the end of the workshop, participants will:

  • Be able to describe what a child rights-based approach (e.g. child rights programming) involves and includes.
  • Have increased confidence and ability to apply child rights principles and standards to all aspects of project/programme planning, implementation and evaluation
  • Be able to identify ways in which their organisations can ensure that child rights are factored into all aspects of their operations.

Intended audience

This course has been designed for development professionals who are either new to this area or have some experience but haven’t received formal training.
