Implementing the Convention on the Rights of the Child: Resource Mobilization in Low-Income Countries. Summary
James R. Himes
This Innocenti Study focuses on the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child as it relates to childrenâ€™s basic economic and social rights in developing countriesâ€”in terms of the obligations placed by the Convention on both States and the international community. A key proposition is that working effectively for childrenâ€™s rights involves many of the same strategies and implementation methods that have proved successful in numerous development efforts worldwide. The rights approach is inherently more concerned with issues of equity, non-discrimination and social justice, but it cannot afford to neglect the challenge of resource mobilization. And in this regard our conception of societal â€˜resourcesâ€™ must be extended beyond the limited finances of governments to encompass human, technological, cultural and organizational capabilities.
