Measuring the progress of children’s rights in Scotland



Treanor MC (2017) Measuring the progress of children’s rights in Scotland. Together Scotland Blog, 31.05.2017.

This blog was written by Dr Morag Treanor, a lecturer in Social Policy with a special focus on quantitative methods at the University of Edinburgh.  Dr Treanor has a special research interest in measurement and indicators in relation to children and works with indices of child wellbeing and material deprivation.  Dr Treanor will present at the ‘UNCRC in Scotland’ series seminar four on Thursday 1st June.  This fourth and final seminar — ‘the UNCRC Going Forwards’ — will bring together the learning, experience and proposals of the previous three seminars to develop a shared model of UNCRC implementation for Scotland.  The seminar series has consisted of four seminars held in partnership between Together, the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships (CRFR) at the University of Edinburgh and the Centre for Child Wellbeing and Protection (CCWP) at the University of Stirling.  The seminar series — funded by SUII — seeks to improve and address gaps in the implementation and monitoring of the UNCRC in Scotland.
