This study was commissioned by UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), a group of NGOs and UNICEF UK to look into the ‘child rights climate’ within DFID. It follows on from other reviews into intergenerational poverty issues and human rights.The main purposes of the study were to assess the perceptions of and approaches towards child rights used by DFID in its development cooperation and to recommend ways in which DFID can better promote, protect and fulfil the rights of children in its work within the framework of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). The study was conducted over 30 days in April–September 2007 and consisted of an extensive desk review of DFID
documentation and other literature and interviews with key DFID and NGO informants.
