The intent of this fourth session is to share and test out the 5 areas of analysis able to orient the evaluation of the effectiveness of interventions. In relation to policies and strategies primarily developed to respond to certain categories of children, the aim is to use these 5 areas as benchmark with the participants in practical exercises.
The IMPACT project analyses how and to which degree child welfare and protection systems are effective to reduce the risk of child trafficking and exploitation and to protect child victims and children at risk. It assesses to which degree national laws and policies are compliant with the standards afforded under the Convention. The analysis further examines the level of inclusion and/or exclusion of the various national welfare and protection systems, and to which degree their implementation into child rights practice is appropriate and effective to respond to children’s needs and rights. Those criteria are crucial in the drafting and implementation of synergic strategies (law, policy and practice) tackling effectively child trafficking and exploitation. Moreover, they represent the settings through which it is possible to reiterate the relation between the centrality of the person and the answers that the context is able to envision and provide in the framework of the system of protection.
