Child-Friendly Laws in Africa

Summary: At the heart of this report is the concept of measurement of the child-friendliness of laws and policies. these days, in development theory and programme implementation, such measurement frequently involves the development of indicators as tools to guide compliance, progress or delivery.

Where possible, for practical and logical reasons, this report builds on existing indicators, or best practices that have been identified by others. However, in addition, a non-finite series of guiding themes were developed for the purposes of this report in order to guide assessment and selection of promising examples/practices for description, and these depart from the conventional. the authors believe that these themes provide rationale and justification for citing specific examples as good, replicable or promising practices.
