DESCRIZIONE DEI CONTENUTI:

The objective of this research is to identify the principal obstacles children and young people face with regard to the realisation of their rights under the Convention on the Rights of the Child. It was commissioned in 2006 by the Ombudsman for Children as a baseline research study concerning children’s rights in Ireland.

The principal methodology used was literature review and guided by the following headings:
• Family environment and alternative care;
• Health, wealth and material deprivation;
• Education;
• Play, leisure and recreation;
• Youth justice.
• Children and young people’s right to be heard, and
• Vulnerable children, including children in need of special protection.

It aligns some of the implications for early school leaving as poverty; being a school age parent; low attendance and absenteeism; and being a member of the Travelling Community.

It makes clear recommendations to the Ombudsman for Children to address the many and multiple problems children in Ireland face in the realisation of their rights and to preserve their rights
