Mainstreaming children's rights

Mainstreaming children's rights means bringing something from the margin into the mainstream - making it acceptable to the majority. It means getting institutions that have so far ignored children's rights to incorporate children's rights into their institutional agendas.

Mainstreaming children's rights requires a child-sensitive lens when planning, monitoring and implementing services, policies and procedures. Children and young people should not be invisible and should be at the forefront of all developments.
