This section includes resources on children’s participation in policy analysis (in NPAs, CRC reporting, MDGs, PRSPs, youth policy) and examples of children and youth in governance and public decision-making processes. This section also includes chapters on children and youth in adult organizations, children in conferences and consultations, and youth involvement in the media. The section on children’s organizations, networks and movements gives an overview of existing initiatives that range from strengthening child-led organizations to promoting guiding principles for children’s organizations.
