The KidsRights Index shows how countries score on children’s rights worldwide. It shows that countries are failing international agreements on children’s rights. Vulnerable and marginalized children, including refugee children, migrant children, disabled children, street children and indigenous children, are still widely discriminated against. Countries should do more to protect these children. Moreover, countries should do more to make sure that children are being heard, have a say in issues that affect them directly and can take action themselves.
The KidsRights Index is designed in collaboration with the Erasmus University Rotterdam.
