A force to be reckoned with...

2011 has seen some major advancements in getting street children's rights, and voices, recognised at an international policy level. As well as the UN passing a resolution on street children in March, the first specifically on street children in 17 years, CSC has commissioned a study which brings together all of the major street children research and literature from the last decade and analyses the gaps. This is vitally important because at present, official information and knowledge on street children is disparate and uncoordinated.  The study will be published later on in the the year and will be a valuable resource for anyone with an interest in street children, whether they be academics or practitioners in the field.

And as a direct result of the UN convention, the UN have also announced a major study which focuses on protecting and promoting the rights of children working and/or living on the street. The CSC study will complement this, and we will also play a role in delivering the UN study, which is due to be published in March 2012.
