An International Discussion on Advancing the Rights of Children

How do children's ombudspersons advance children's rights? Children's ombudspersons, also known as independent children's rights institutions, have benn established worldwide. Endorsed by the UN, they are independent of their governments and endowed with legal powers. Yet we know  little about how children's ombudspersons function. How do they work? What shapes their success? What objectives do they pursue?
