Abstract
A report by Dr Greg Mannion. Providing greater support for children and young people's participation in Scotland is seen by Scotland’s Commissioner for Children and Young People as a way of addressing children’s rights, improving practice across all kinds of services, and advancing a more democratic civil society. The University of Stirling’s Dr Greg Mannion has reported to Scotland’s Commissioner for Children and Young People on how organisations might best encourage children’s participation in decisions which affect them, as part of Scotland’s commitment to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Until now there has been no nationally agreed framework for children and young people’s participation in the decisions taken in Scotland which affect them. Nor has there been an agreed model for monitoring and evaluating this work. Dr Mannion’s report, Children and Young People’s Participation in Scotland: Frameworks, standards and principles for practice, provides clear principles and guidelines for the national coordination of children and young people’s participation in decision making in Scotland.
