Children’s right to participation in practice – Webinar Recording

The Right of Children to participate and be heard is enshrined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The Committee on the Rights of the Child has repeated the need for the meaningful participation of children in all aspects that impact on their rights in Australia’s policy and practice. Australia’s state and national child rights commissioners have also emphasised the need for children’s voices to be heard. This fifth webinar in the CRC series we will hear from Professor Laura Lundy, developer of the 'Lundy Model'. She will outline the practical application of the model, and address the steps needed by state and federal government policy-makers tasked with the reporting process, as well as service providers and child rights advocates, to implement the Concluding Observations of the CRC and to ensure children’s participation in this.
