Instructor: Peter Dixon
This advanced e-learning course introduces staff members of (international) development agencies and NGOs to child rights-based approaches. A child rights-based approach is a conceptual framework for the process of human development that is normatively based on international children’s rights standards and operationally directed to promoting, protecting and fulfilling children’s human rights. Essentially, a child rights-based approach integrates the norms, standards and principles of the international human rights system into the plans, policies and processes of programme development for children.
Participants will deepen their knowledge about project and programme development from a child rights perspective. They will learn how to apply the principles of children’s right to be heard, non-discrimination, and best interests, as well as about accountability to various phases of project planning and implementation. The course will focus on practical tools for child rights situation assessment, programme planning, implementation, child rights indicators, and monitoring and evaluation within the child rights-based conceptual framework.
