Child participation assessment tool (2016)
In recent years, children’s participation in decision making in all matters affecting them has gained ground. Today the importance of listening to children and young people is recognised as fundamental to their human dignity and healthy development.
This Assessment Tool provides specific and measurable indicators with which States can begin to measure progress in implementing Recommendation CM/Rec(2012)2 of the Committee of Ministers to member States on the participation of children and young people under the age of 18.
