Children's Right to be Heard and Effective Child Protection: A Guide for governments and children´s rights advocates in involving children and young people in ending all forms of violence

This publication offers guidance and practical examples to show the varied roles children can play in implementing the overarching recommendations of the United Nations Secretary General’s Global Study on Violence against Children. Building on the Committee on the Rights of the Child's keenly awaited General Comment on the child's right to be heard (2009), the publication considers different conceptions and practical approaches to participation, as well as the choices and challenges facing adults engaged in (or preparing to be engaged in) the implementation of children's rights.
