Children as active citizens. Commitments and obligations for children's civil rights and civic engagement in East Asia and the Pacific (Brochure)

This guide presents a broad agenda for the civil rights of children, bringing together a wide range of approaches, providing a strong rationale for the promotion of children's civic participation and citizenship as an essential contribution to realising children's rights as a whole. Guidance is provided on the practical application of the civil rights of children to a name, freedom of expression, access to information, complaints procedures, justice and economic equality. A set of basic actions for government, civil society and media are identified and proposals made for monitoring advances.
This publication guide is the result of a year of intensive collaborative work involving the Inter-Agency Working Group on Children’s Participation (IAWGCP) organisations and other partners in the East Asia and Pacific region.
