This Child Protection Mainstreaming Case Studies Series aims to strengthen the understanding of child protection mainstreaming. It employs good practices to illustrate steps taken, challenges encountered and opportunities identified by involved stakeholders to ensure child protection considerations inform all aspects of humanitarian action.
Case studies have long been considered an effective learning and awareness raising tool. Based on real-life events which serve to illustrate specific themes and challenges, case studies are particularly suitable for adult learning: they illustrate relevant and real life experiences in an accessible, realistic way and they give people an opportunity to reflect and solve problems. This Case Studies Series has been developed to suit a variety of learning, awareness raising and advocacy purposes.
