- Democracy — Children, rights — Rule of law
This chapter documents the work of the Council of Europe (CoE) in the area of children’s rights. In doing so, it considers the contribution made by the Council in this area, highlighting its principal achievements and the approaches used in this work. Its work is divided into three sections: the first section deals with the standard setting work of the CoE, which identifies the treaties and other instruments adopted by the CoE’s various bodies. The second section considers the establishment of the Children’s Rights Division and outlines the three strategies that have guided its work. The third section explains the mainstreaming of children’s rights undertaken by the Children’s Rights Division across the Council’s activities and functions, as well as the collaborative work undertaken with other international bodies. Finally, the chapter offers some concluding reflections on the contribution of the Council’s work on children’s rights.
