Save the Children Philippines in cooperation with the Institute of Human Rights and Peace Studies of Mahidol University in Thailand, has just published the Child Rights Situation Analysis within the ASEAN Region.
The first of its kind in Asia, this research presents a comprehensive overview of the situation of children in 10 ASEAN Member States. The report examines of the underlying causes of violations and gaps in the fulfillment of children’s rights. It looks into the existing legal and policy frameworks at the regional and national levels which impact positively or negatively on children. It also examines the environment of changes taking place and likely to take place over in this sub-region and how these may affect children’s rights.
The results of the study will inform Save the Children’s program priorities in the ASEAN region. It is hoped that civil society, governments at the local, national, regional, and international levels will find this study useful in addressing children’s issues and fulfilling children’s rights.
The Child Rights Situation Analysis in the ASEAN Region was financed by Sida, the Swedish International Development Authority.
