Challenging discrimination

Challenging discrimination against children requires a range of strategies which cover many different areas and are rightfully tailored to account for the particular situation of children in their countries.

Nevertheless, successful efforts will include certain key components. These include: changing legislation, policy, attitudes, as well as the physical environment and the allocation of resources that perpetuate inequalities and discrimination, providing channels for children's participation, collecting data, and establishing mechanisms to monitor and report discrimination.

The pages that follow provide some guidance on these diverse areas and examples of how discrimination has been successfully challenged.
