The Children’s Rights Alliance is seeking to appoint an external evaluator to assess a new EU Funded Project being carried out by the Children’s Rights Alliance and its partners – ‘Building Children’s Futures – Using Children’s Rights to Recover from the Global Pandemic’.

The Building Children’s Future Project:
The Building Children’s Futures Project will examine the effect of the pandemic measures on activities and services for children and young people through consultations with groups of children and young people that were disproportionately impacted. By working with youth researchers, Ireland will be used as a case study to document how child participation structures worked during the pandemic. Best practice in Covid-19 responses in Europe will be identified, and the project will explore how Child Rights Impact Assessments (CRIAs) can embed a children’s rights approach, including during times of emergency. A prototype CRIA and training supports aimed at embedding children’s rights will be developed. Evidence of CRIA implementation will also inform the EU Network for Children’s Rights work in relation to the EU Strategy on the Rights of the Child 2021-2024. This work will be undertaken by the Children’s Rights Alliance in partnership with the Department of Children Equality Disability Integration and Youth, Tusla the Child and Family Agency, Eurochild, the University of Galway UNESCO Child and Family Centre, and Foroige.
