Marina Monteith & Dr Una O’Connor Bones (UU)
The seminar will cover research undertaken by the Children and Youth Programme, UNESCO Centre (IRISS UU), producing a set of child rights indicators to assist reporting in relation to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and which further develops the existing Children and Young People’s Strategy outcome indicators within a rights framework. This project also maps existing data used by Departments and the extensive datasets available in Northern Ireland with regard to children’s circumstances and lives. The project makes recommendations on how existing data can be used by Departments to ensure a child rights focus in the monitoring of policy and its implementation where it affects children.
Date of seminar: 21 February 2013.
