ENGAGE - Building together European learning material on Education for Citizenship

We continue the blog entries with materials connected with ENGAGE children participation.



The following is the first of three relevant materials from Unicef.

Teaching and Learning about Child Rights: A study of implementation in 26 countries is a research about the situation and good practices on promotion of children rights and children rights education from 2015.


UNICEF distributed this research to contribute to the global debate on child rights education. This study explores child rights education in early childhood education, primary and secondary schools in 26 countries with a UNICEF National Committee presence. It includes a literature review, results from an on-line survey completed by national experts, seven country case studies and a series of benchmarking statements to guide implementation of child rights education.

The online survey explores child rights education in the curriculum, teacher education and teacher qualifications, the existence of student councils, and monitoring mechanisms regarding the quality of child rights education. The benchmarking statements are divided into seven areas: official curriculum, teacher education, resources, pedagogy, policy alignment across the education system, participation as a right, and monitoring and accountability.
