Overview: idenitfying best practices in children's participation

The overview of this issue on the evaluation of children's participation has its roots in a symposium on 'Children's Participation in Community Settings', which was held in Oslo, Norway in June 2000. The symposium brought together members of the Childwatch International Research Network and the Growing Up in Cities project of the MOST Programme of UNESCO. The overview outlines the Convention on the Rights of the Child and how it relates to the articles, and gives a brief description of each contribution in this edition of PLA notes.
